Managers and Engineers

Managers and Engineers

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, and they're falling off the ladders, dropping the tape
measures -- the whole thing is just a mess.

A group of engineers arrive and see what the managers are trying to
do. They walk over to the flagpole, pull it out of the ground and lay
it flat on the ground. They measure it from end to end, give the
measurement to one of the managers, and then walk away.

After the engineers have gone, one manager turns to another and
laughs. "Isn't that just like engineers? We're looking for the height
and they give us the length."
