Ice Breaker

Received this on my email from one of my friends. As I always say, this is just for laughs, no offense meant whatsoever. When I first read it, it made me laugh so hard coz I haven't read Pinoy jokes for quite a while. Keep reading and you will see how smart pinoys are! :)


PINOY CONTRACTOR

Three contractors are bidding to fix the White House fence. One fromthe Philippines , another from Mexico and an American.

They go with a White House official to examine the fence.

The American contractor takes out a tape measure and does somemeasuring, then works some figures with a pencil.

"Well," he says. "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 formaterials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

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

The Filipino contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to theWhite House official and whispers: "$2,700." The official, incredulous,says, ! " What? You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did youcome up with such a high figure?" How do you expect me to consider yourservice with that bid?

"Easy," the Pinoy explains, "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Mexico ".

The next day, the Pinoy and the Mexican are working on the Fence.
