It was a hot meeting at the conference hall, all the people from the dept were called in, the VP was looking much tensed.
The mood was so bad my friend asked "Hey, What is this meeting about?"
I told him may be the would decide when to have another meeting and chuckled.
People though nervous smiled at each other, then the VP started talking.
He said about the recent attrition rate 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 VP.
The VP then turned to the manger and told "Hey take how much ever resources you want recruit or take them from other departments, but complete the work in another 25 days. Take people and complete it man."
To this the sweet manager humbly replied
"Sir! Give me one wife and nine months and I shall show you results, Don't give me nine wives and one month, I cannot do anything."�
Everyone looked at him blank!
The VP did not have anything else to say and just walked away....
What an awesome answer.
