The German contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $ 700... in which $ 300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $ 100 profit for me."
The Pakistani contractor doesn't measure or do any figuring, but leans over to the White House official and whispers: " $ 2,700. " The official incredulously says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?" "Easy," the Pakistani explains, "$ 1,000 for you, $ 1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Germany to do the work!"
