A Little Flagpole Humour :)

Two Saskatchewan mechanical engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.   A woman walked by and asked what they were doing.

“We’re supposed to find the height of the flagpole,” said Bob, “but we don’t have a ladder.”
The woman said, “Hand me that wrench out of your toolbox.”
She loosened a few bolts, and laid the pole down.
 
Then she took a ​​tape measure from their toolbox, took a measurement, and announced, “Eighteen feet, six inches,” and​​ walked away.
 
Raymond shook his head and laughed. “Ain’t that just like a Miss know-it-all woman!  We ask for the height and she gives us the length!”
 
Bub and Ray are still working for the government.
