A project manager, a computer programmer and a computer operator are driving down the road when the car they are in gets a flat tyre. The three men try to solve the problem.Other Posts:
The project manager said: "Let's catch a cab and in ten minutes we'll reach our destination. " The computer programmer said: "We have here the driver's guide. I can easily replace the flat tyre and continue our drive."
The computer operator said: "First of all, let's turn off the engine and turn it on again. Maybe it will fix the problem."
Suddenly a Microsoft software engineer passed by and said: "Try to close all windows, get off the car, and then get in and try again."
