New Jersey Style

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White
    House: one from New Jersey , another from Tennessee and the
    third from Florida .

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

    The Florida 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 crew and $100 profit for me."

    The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and
    figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

    The New Jersey 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 New Jersey contractor whispers back, "$1,000 for me,
    $1,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix
    the fence."

    "Done!" replies the government official.
