Outsourcing Explained


And how Indians grab the deals…

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House in D.C.


One from Bangladesh , another from India, and the third from China .


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


The Bangladesh 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 about $900. ($400 for materials, $400 for my team and $100 profit for me)”.


The Chinese contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, “I can do this job for $700. ($300 for materials, $300 for my team and $100 profit for me)”.


The Indian contractor doesn’t measure or figure, but leans over to the White House 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 Indian contractor whispers back, “$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from China to fix the fence.”


“Done!” replies the government official.

Search


A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.

“Hello ? ”

“Is your daddy home?” he asked.

” Yes ,” whispered the small voice.

“May I talk with him?”

The child whispered, ” No .”


Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, “Is your Mommy there?”

“Yes .”

“May I talk with her?” Again the small voice whispered, ” No .”


Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, “Is anybody else there?”

” Yes ,” whispered the child, ” a policeman .”

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee’s home, the boss asked, “May I speak with the policeman?”

” No, he’s busy , ” whispered the child.

“Busy doing what?”

” Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman ,” came the whispered answer.


Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, “What is that noise?”

” A helicopter ” answered the whispering voice.

“What is going on there?” demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. Again, whispering, the child answered, ” The search team just landed a helicopter .”


Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?”

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle…

” ME .”……….

Missing


Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, were extremely mischievous.

They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew all about it. If any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.

The boys’ mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys.

The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly,
“Do you know where God is?” son!

The boy’s mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open.

So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?!”

Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “Where is God?!”

The boy screamed and bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, “What happened?”

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time!!

GOD is missing, and they think we did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Dear Dad,

Berlin is wonderful, people are nice and I really like it here. But dad, I am a bit ashamed to arrive at my college with my solid gold Ferrari 599 GTB, when all my teachers and friends travel by train.

Your Son

Nasser

Sometime later Nasser gets reply to his e-mail from his Dad:

Loving son,

Twenty Million Dollars transferred to your account, please stop embarrassing us, go and get yourself a train too.

A MOVIE A DAY: CARS

Its been ages since I’ve watched a movie with the games and a lot of other things keeping me busy! 😛 Observing this, Miss Sakura here devised a very clever plan which successfully hatched into having me watch at least a single movie every night. And not just that, I’ve also been asked to write about how I felt after watching every movie for you people ^_^. So here goes… 🙂

I spent the first night watching “Cars”, something that I’ve been putting off for…like…4 years now :P. But I must say it totally blew me away! Been a long time since I watched such a heartwarming movie :). Although I gotta admit, I didn’t exactly expect the movie to focus on friends and family, instead I thought it would be about some cartoonic cars trying their best to become the world champions or something O_O, which I’m really happy about :). Almost all the characters were really memorable, my personal favourite being the rusty “Matey” :D. Some of the scenes had me laughing on the floor too, like the one where the tractors flip over at the sound of horns 😀 :D.

All in all, if you’re looking for a heartwarming, memorable and a fun movie and if you don’t mind it being an animated one, you should definitely try out “Cars”! 🙂 And yes,  gear up for CARS 2, releasing this month!!
