Software Engineer and his boss
Antony Vasanth Kani
A Programmer and his Program Manager are sitting next to each other on a long flight from Chennai to New York. The Program Manager leans over to the Programmer and asks if he would like to play a fun game.
The Programmer just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The Program Manager persists and explains that the game is real easy and is a lot of fun. He explains "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5. Then you ask me a question, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $5." Again, the Programmer politely declines and tries to get to sleep.
The Program Manager, now somewhat agitated, says, "OK, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I'll pay you $100!"
This catches the Programmer's attention, and since it is his boss that continues to ask him to play, he agrees to the game.
The Program Manager asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The Programmer doesn't say a word, but reaches into his wallet, pulls out a five dollar bill and hands it to the Program Manager.
Now, it's the Programmer's turn. He asks his Manager "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down on four?"
The Manager looks up at him with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all of his references. He taps into the Airphone with his modem and searches the net and then organises a Committee to come up with an answer. Frustrated, he sends e-mail to his co-workers--all to no avail.
After about an hour, he wakes the Programmer and hands him $100. The Programmer politely takes the $100 and turns away to try to get back to sleep. The Manager, shakes the programmer and asks "Well, so what's the answer?" Without a word, the Programmer reaches into his wallet, hands his Manager $5, and turns away to get back to sleep.
