Two workers were standing outside a building looking up at a flagpole. A lady walked by and asked what they were doing.

“We need to find out the height of this flagpole,” said one worker. “But we don’t have a ladder.”

The lady opened her purse, took out a wrench, loosened a couple of bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground. Then she took a tape measure from her purse, measured the flagpole and said: “Ten metres, three centimetres.” And with that she walked off.

One worker shook his head and said: “Lotta good that does us. We ask for the height and she gives us the length!”
