Two maintenance men were standing at the base of a flagpole looking up. A woman walked by and asked them what they were doing.

“We’re supposed to find the height of the flagpole,” one of the men said. “But we don’t have a ladder.”

The woman replied: “Hand me a wrench from your tool box.”

She loosened a few bolts, took the flagpole down and laid it on the ground. She then took a tape measure from the toolbox and measured the pole. She looked up to the men and said: “It’s 6.31 metres.” Then she walked away.

The men both shook their head and laughed. One said: “Well isn’t that just like a ‘Miss know-it-all’ woman. We need the height and she gives us the length!”
