Superb Communication Lag!!!
Programmer to Team Leader:
"We can't do this proposed project. **CAN NOT**. It will involve a major
design change and no one in our team knows the design of this legacy system.
And above that, nobody in our company knows the language in which this
application has been written. So even if somebody wants to work on it, they
can't. If you ask my personal opinion, the company should never take these
type of projects."
Team Leader to Project Manager :
"This project will involve a design change. Currently, we don't have any
staff that has experience in this type of work. Also, the language is
unfamiliar to us, so we will have to arrange for some training if we take
this project. In my personal opinion, we are not ready to take on a project
of this nature."
Project Manager to 1st Level Manager :
"This project involves a design change in the system and we don't have much
experience in that area. Also, not many people in our company are
appropriately trained for it. In my personal opinion, we might be able to do
the project but we would need more time than usual to complete it."
1st Level Manager to Senior Level Manager :
"This project involves design re-engineering. We have some people who have
worked in this area and others who know the implementation language. So they
can train other people. In my personal opinion we should take this project,
but with caution."
Senior Level Manager to CEO :
"This project will demonstrate to the industry our capabilities in
remodeling the design of a complete legacy system. We have all the necessary
skills and people to execute this project successfully. Some people have
already given in house training in this area to other staff members. In my
personal opinion, we should not let this project slip by us under any

"This is the type of project in which our company specializes. We have

Hi Friends see the family problems between the Indian and American
Two men, one American and an Indian were sitting in a bar drinking shot after shot.
The Indian man said to the American, 'You know my parents are forcing me to get married to this so called homely girl from a village whom I haven't even met once.' We call this arranged marriage. I don't want to marry a
woman whom I don't love.... I told them that openly and now have a hell lot of family problems.'
The American said, talking about love marriages... I'll tell you my story.
I married a widow whom I deeply loved and dated for 3 years. 'After a
couple of years, my father fell in love with my step-daughter and married her, so my father became my son-in-law and I became my father's
Legally now my daughter is my mother and my wife my grandmother.
More problems occurred when I had a son. My son is my father's brother and so he is my uncle.
Situations turned worse when my father had a son. Now my father's son, my brother is my grandson. Ultimately, I have become my own grand father and I am my own grandson.. And you say you have family problems...
The Indian fainted…

A famous Inspirational Speaker Said :
"Best Years of my life were spent in the Arms of a WOMAN who was not My WIFE".
Audience was in Shock & Silence.
He added :
"SHE WAS MY MOTHER"
Applause & Laughter!
A Top Manager tried to crack this at Home.
After a good 3-4 Drinks, he said loudly to his wife, in the kitchen:
" Best Years of my Life were spent in the arms of a Woman who was not my wife!! "
There was sudden silence!
Standing for a Moment and trying hard to recall the 2nd Half of the sentence , he finally blurted out
" Forget it, I can't remember who She was".
By the time he regained his Senses, He was on a Hospital Bed recovering from Burns of Boiling Water.
