Hi guys,

Here is another joke for IT guys..:-)))

I went to visit an old friend at a mental asylum, (the pressure as an IT Manager had
gotten too much for him) and I asked the Director what criteria they use to
determine that a patient should be institutionalized.
"Well" said the Director "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a
teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him/her to empty the bathtub".

OK, here's your test.

1. Would you use the teaspoon?
2. Would you use the teacup?
3. Would you use the bucket?

"Oh, I understand" I said "A normal person would use the
bucket because it is bigger than the spoon or teacup".

"No" said the Director, "a normal person would pull the plug!
Do you want a room with or without a view?"

Best Regards

Hi Anonymous,

That guy, which went to that mental hospital to visit his IT manager friend, was kinda crazy too, at least according to that doctor...:-))). Question of that doctor was a trap, because everyone would take a bucket to empty the bath-tub...of course. And that's the point..:-))..

Best Regards


Oh my God,

Am I too stupid to get it, explain the last part for me, please!

"No" said the Director, "a normal person would pull the plug!
Do you want a room with or without a view?"

I'm starting to worry about myself..
Hi Sunray Shower,

That's ok. In fact, this joke remainded me one story from the university, where I was studying. One professor there was examining one of his students. He wanted to give him "B" for his performance, but that student wanted "A": "Hey c'mon, professor, I answered all of your questions. I wanna "A"..:-) He said. That professor was thinking for a while and answered: "All right, if you'll figure out how many light bulbs are in this room, I give you an "A". That's easy, said that student. There are 4 light bulbs in this room. So are you gonna give me an "A"? No that's wrong, said professor and took out fifth light bulb hidden in his table. There are five bulbs in this room...sorry...Next...:-). That joke is very similar to this story. Everyone is choosing from that three options. But they're forgeting that the most easiest way to empty that bath-tub is just pull out the plug...:-)). This forms an point of this joke. Like I said, it was a trap from that doctor.

Best Regards
