Are you and Engineer or a Manager?

A group of managers are given an assignment to measure the
height of a flagpole. So they go out to the flagpole with
ladders and tape measures, and they're falling off the ladders
and dropping the tape measures. The whole thing is just a mess.

An engineer comes along and sees what they're trying to do,
walks over, pulls the flagpole out of the ground, lays it flat,
measures it from end to end, gives the measurement to one of
the managers and walks away.

After the engineer has gone, one manager turns to another and
laughs: "Isn't that just like an engineer? We're looking for
the height and he gives us the length!"


  1. LOL! I wold figure the engineer would have all sort of angles and formulas to calculate the height based on the length of its shadow!!

  2. figures! Oh ho. Management has thought proceses beyond many dreams.


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
