Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White
House in D.C. One from New Jersey , another fromTennessee and the
third, Florida. They go with a White House official to examine the

The Florida contractor takes out a tape measure and does some
measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well", he says,
"I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for
my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring,
then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300
for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The New Jersey contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over
to the White House official and whispers, "$2,700".

The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the
other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?" The New
Jersey contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and
we hire the guy fromTennessee to fix the fence." :D
