Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence in D.C. One from New Jersey, another from Tennessee and the third, Florida. They go with a government official to examine the fence.
The Florida contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a . "Well", he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."
The New Jersey 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 New Jersey contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."
"Done!", replies the government official.
And that friends, is how it all works!

My dad, a CPA, had a guy, a state Congresman no less, come to him once with a similar offer, only he wanted to pay my dad in "favors." You wouldn't know it to look at my old man but he can be tough. I'm proud to say he told the guy to take a hike.
