GRIN AND SHARE IT: “The Flagpole”

The Flagpole

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

An engineer comes along and sees what they’re trying to do.
He casually pulls the flagpole out of the ground, lays it down
on the ground, and measures it from end to end. Then, he
gives the measurement to one of the managers and walks

After the engineer has left, one manager turns to the other
and laughs, “Isn’t that just like an engineer… we’re looking for
the height and he gives us the length.”
