Three men were working together on a project: a hardware engineer, a software engineer, and the project manager. About mid-week they decided to relieve some stress by walking the beach during lunch.
As they walked, they came upon an ornate lamp that looked like it came right out of an Arabian Nights tale. As one of them rubbed the lamp, the hoped-for genie appeared!
“Ho! Normally I would grant you three wishes but, since there are three of you, I will grant you each one wish.”
The hardware engineer went first.
“I would like to spend the rest of my life living in a huge house in St. Thomas with no money worries.”
The genie granted him his wish and sent him on off to St. Thomas. The software engineer went next.
“I would like to spend the rest of my life living on a huge yacht, cruising the Mediterranean, with no money worries.”
The genie granted him his wish and sent him off to the Mediterranean. Last, but not least, it was the project manager’s turn.
“And what would your wish be?” asked the genie.
“I want them both back after lunch.”
