It was a hot meeting at the office conference hall. All the people from the department had been called. The V.P was all tensed up. The mood was so bad.My friend asked me, "Hey, what is this meeting all about?
I said, "Maybe, they will decide on when to have the next meeting."
People around smiled at each other. Then the V.P started talking. It was about the recent attrition rate, that was so high. Around 10 people had put in their papers - all experienced guys. It was the quarter-end and so, work was huge.
"If we do not complete the work on time, we need to be paying heavy penalty", said the V.P.
The V.P then turned to the manager and said, "Hey... take how much ever resources you want. Recruit or take them from other departments, butcomplete the work in another 25 days. Take people and complete it, man. "
To this, the sweet manager replied "Sir, give me one wife and nine months and I shall show you results, but DON'T give me nine wives and one month. I just cannot do anything."
Everyone looked at him blank.........
The V.P was not prepared for this answer.
We looked at the manager and thought, "What an Awesome Reply, man!"
