Hi to All,
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the Parliament house.; one from Wellington, another from Christchurch and the third, from Kaitaia.

They go with a government official to examine the fence.
The Wellington 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 Christchurch contractor also does some measuring and figuring, and then says, 'I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

The Kaitaia contractor doesn't measure or figure but leans over to the Government 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 Kaitaia contractor whispers back,
'$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Christchurch to fix the fence.'
'Done!' replies the government official. lol!! laugh
And that friends, is how it all works! wink

cheers to more Beers!!
