Pole Contest

A phone company put an ad in the paper in order to recruit workers.
The next day, two groups of workers showed up - a crew of five skilled workers and a crew of five goobers.

The company could not decide whom to give the job to, so they gave the two groups a test.  The company boss said, "Each crew will receive a telephone pole that must be installed into the ground.  Whoever is able to do it first will get the job."

Both groups agreed that this was a fair test, so off they went in company trucks with telephone poles sticking out the back.  A few hours passed, and finally, at 5:00, the skilled crew returned.  "Yes!"  they shouted.  "We came back first, so we get the job!!"

"Good work, men." said the boss, "However, we must wait until the other crew comes back to make sure that the reason they're delayed is not because of traffic or the truck breaking down."

"Fine, no problem," replied the crew.  An hour passed.  Two hours passed and then three hours.  Finally, at 8:30, the Goober crew arrived.  They were flushed and breathing hard, as if they had just gone through harsh labor.

"What happened to you?  What took so long?" asked the boss incredulously.

"What do you mean, 'what took so long'??  Do we get the job?"

"YOU get the job?  No way!  The other crew were back here HOURS ago!"

"Well, of course they were," said the goobers.  "They only put the pole in a quarter of the way!!"
