How much does it cost?
Three contractors bided to repair the White House’s fence: one was from Floria, one was from Texas, and the last one was from New York. The man from Florida, after measuring and calculating carefully about half an hour, said:
- I need $ 900: $ 400 for materials, $ 400 for workers, $ 100 for me.
The man from Texas, after spending half an hour measuring too, said:
- It will be $ 650: $ 600 for material and labor, $ 50 for me.
The New Yorker, smoking cigar, said shortly:
- $ 2,650!
The employer exclaimed:
- That is way too expensive. You did not even measure anything.
- Keep your voice down, bro! $ 1,000 for you, $ 1,000, $ 650 to hire the Texas guy to cover everything.
