Three contractors were visiting a tourist attraction on the same day.

One was from Nigeria, another from Germany, and the third from France. At the end of the tour, the guard asked them what they did for a living. They all replied that they were contractors, the guard said, "Hey we need one of the rear fences redone. Why don't you guys take a look at it & give me a bid?"

So, to the back fence they all went to check it out.

First to step up was the German contractor. He took out his tape measure and pencil, did some measuring and said, "Well I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me."

Next was the French contractor. He also took out his tape measure and pencil, did some quick figuring and said, "Looks like I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me."

Without so much as moving, the Nigerian contractor said, $2,700."

The guard, incredulous, looked at him and said, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

"Easy," he said. "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the guy from France."

It is not funny at all. It is not Nigerian to do what the guy did. It is like most of you in the house are lost !!! Nigerian contractors inflate contracts, give bribe for contracts etc. But a smart Nigerian guy would have done something better than that...not just call out $2700.
