Contractors joke of the month
A project manager who has just successfully completed a long project is still totally stressed. He decides that the best thing would be to spend a month alone on a farm away from it all. After two days of relaxation on the farm with long walks by the forest and through the meadows he is starting to get bored so he asks the local farmer whether there is any simple work for him to do. The farmer invites him to sort potatoes. After an hour, the farmer sees the manager again and notices that the he’s nearly having a nervous breakdown. "What’s the problem?" Asks the farmer with surprise, "This is a very light work, the large potatoes go to the left and the small to the right...." "This is a lot more stressful than my profession," says the manager, "In my job I make many choices, but not every second."
