Indian way of doing business

Posted on

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House
in Washington D.C. One from Bangladesh , another from India and the
third, from China.
They go with a White House office to examine the fence.

The Bangladesh 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
team and $100 profit for me)”.

The Chinese contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then
says, “I can do this job for $700. ($300 for materials, $300 for my
team and $100 profit for me)”.

The Indian contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the
White House official and whispers, “$2,700.”

The official, outraged says, “You didn’t even measure like the other
guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?”

The Indian contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and
we hire the guy from China to fix the fence.”

“Done!” replies the government official.
