Trabajo por USD1

7 Ago


Algunas veces, es un error juzgar el valor de una actividad simplemente por el tiempo que toma realizarla.

Un buen ejemplo es el caso del ingeniero que fue llamado a arreglar una computadora muy grande y extremadamente compleja: una computadora que valía 12 millones de dólares.

Sentado frente a la pantalla, oprimió unas cuantas teclas, asintió   con la cabeza, murmuró algo para sí mismo y apagó el aparato.

Procedió a sacar un pequeño destornillador de su bolsillo y dio vuelta y media a un minúsculo tornillo. Entonces encendió de nuevo la computadora y comprobó que estaba trabajando perfectamente.

El presidente de la compañía se mostró encantado y se ofreció a pagar la  cuenta en el acto.

  – ¿Cuánto le debo? – preguntó.

  – Son mil dólares, si me hace el favor.

  – ¿Mil dólares? ¿Mil dólares por unos momentos de trabajo? ¿Mil dólares por apretar un simple tornillito? ¡Ya sé que mi computadora cuesta 12 millones de dólares, pero mil dólares es una cantidad disparatada! La pagaré sólo si me manda una factura perfectamente detallada que la justifique.

El ingeniero asintió con la cabeza y se fue.

A la mañana siguiente, el presidente recibió la factura, la leyó con cuidado, sacudió la cabeza y procedió a pagarla en el acto, sin chistar.

   La factura decía:

Servicios Prestados:

   Apretar un tornillo …………………… 1 dólar

   Saber qué tornillo apretar …………… 999 dólares

El mundial de fútbol siempre arrasa con todo. Al argentino no le importa nada, cuelga todo y, durante un mes,vive, piensa y respira con colores celestes y blancos. Es una fiebre que no se puede bajar. Una vez cada cuatro años, me convierto en una experta en fútbol, miro todos los partidos y me transformo en un barrabrava. También, una vez cada cuatro años, me obsesiono por distintos detalles que componen a esta fiesta mundial. Este año, me interesó recopilar todas las canciones oficiales de los mundiales de todos los tiempos. Acá va, disfruten y queden manija, que para octavos todavía faltan tres días.

6 Abr
En una ciudad de EE.UU, muere un eminente Cardiólogo y sus amigos y familiares deciden hacerle un grandioso y pomposo funeral. En medio de la Iglesia y detrás del ataúd se encontraba un gigantesco corazón todo cubierto de flores. Terminado el servicio fúnebre y leida la eulogía, el corazón se abre en dos y el ataúd, al son de una hermosa música, se desliza suavemente dentro del corazón. Una vez adentro, las dos puertas se cierran y el ataúd desaparece de la vista de los presentes, encerrado para toda la eternidad en el hermoso corazón. En ese momento se oye la risa de uno de los amigos del difunto. Todo el mundo se da vuelta para mirarlo y el señor se disculpa diciendo: “Lo siento mucho, estaba pensando en mi propio funeral. Soy ginecólogo”
