gotta love The Smarts of these Italians.......

you gotta love these Italian entrepreneurs!!!!!

Three contractors . . . one from Italy , another from Australia and the
third from Vietnam are bidding to repair the Parliament House fence. They go
with a Parliamentary official to examine the fence.

The Australian 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 $900 . . . $400 for materials, $400 for labor and $100 profit for
me."

The Vietnamese 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 Italian contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the
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?"

"Easy," the Italian explains, "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the
guy from Vietnam to do the work." Bada Bing!!!
