Eleven people were dangling below ahelicopter on a rope. There were tenHR people and one engineer.Since the rope was not strong enough tohold all the eleven, they decided thatone of them had to let go to save all theothers.
They could not decide who should be thevolunteer. Finally the engineer said hewould let go of the rope since engineersare used to do everything for thecompany. They forsake their family,don’t claim all of their expenses and doa lot of overtime without gettinganything in return.
When he finished his moving speechall the HR people began to clap…
Moral:Never underestimate thepowers of the engineer.
A group of engineers and a group of HRpeople take a train to a conference.Each HR person holds a ticket. But theentire group of engineers has boughtonly one ticket for a single passenger.The HR people are just shaking theirheads and are secretly pleased that thearrogant engineers will finally get whatthey deserve.
Suddenly one of the engineers calls out:“The conductor is coming!”. At once, allthe engineers jump up and squeeze intoone of the toilets. The conductorchecks the tickets of the HR people.When he notices that the toilet isoccupied he knocks on the door andsays: “Ticket, please!” One of theengineers slides the single ticket underthe doors and the conductor continuesmerrily on his round.
For the return trip the HR peopledecide to use the same trick. They buyonly one ticket for the entire group butthey are baffled as they realize thatthe engineers didn’t buy any tickets atall. After a while one of the engineersannounces again: “The conductor iscoming!” Immediately all the HR peoplerace to a toilet and lock themselves in.
All the engineers leisurely walk to theother toilet. Before the last engineerenters the toilet, he knocks on thetoilet occupied by the HR people andsays: “Ticket, please!”
And the moral of the story? HR people like to use themethods of the engineers, but they don’t really understand them.
Once upon a time three HR people werewalking through the woods and suddenlythey were standing in front of a huge,wild river. But they desperately had toget to the other side. But how, withsuch a raging torrent? The first HR guyknelt down and prayed to the Lord:“Lord, please give me the strength tocross this river! "
*pppppfffffffuuuuffffffff*The Lord gave him long arms andstrong legs. Now he could swimacross the river. It took him abouttwo hours and he almost drownedseveral times. BUT… he was successful!
The second HR guy, who observedthis, prayed to the Lord and said:“Lord, please give me the strengthAND the necessary tools to cross thisriver!”
*pppppfffffffuuuuffffffff*The Lord gave him a tub and he managedto cross the river despite the fact thatthe tub almost capsized a couple oftimes. BUT… he was successful!
The third HR man who observed all thiskneeled down and prayed: “Lord, pleasegive me the strength, the means and theintelligence to cross this river!”
*pppppfffffffuuuuffffffff*The Lord converted the HR man intoan engineer. He took a quick glance onthe map, walked a few metersupstream and crossed the bridge.
Moral?You have to be an engineer to think intelligent, Otherwise… GOD HELP YOU !
Send this to your engineer friends so that they have something to smile about;and to the HR people if you think they can stomach the truth!
