Two students of architecture, one Italian and one Greek are at a bar to celebrate their graduation
The Italian student proposes an idea his Greek classmate, “Let’s meet up again in 10 years, to see how successful we have become”.
The Greek student, interested in this proposition, accepts.
10 years later The Greek man is invited to the home of the Italian man, when he arrives, he is picked up by a limousine, which drives through the countryside to a mansion on a hill.
There is a pool outside, 3 floors, and a massive garden.
The Greek man is awestruck and says “My friend, how did you manage to accomplish this in 10 years?”,
the Italian man laughs and says “You see that road over there?” The Greek man looks over,
“The government paid me to make a road which was 10 meters wide,
I made it 9”. Thinking over this, the Greek man nods and asks the Italian man to visit him in 10 years.
10 years later The Italian man is invited to the home of the Greek man, when he arrives, he is picked up by a helicopter.
The helicopter flies him to a massive mansion on the top of a mountain, with 3 pools, and a great vineyard stretching on for as far as the eye can see.
There are cars lining the parking lot, and stories upon stories of housing. The Italian man, awestruck, says “
My friend, how did you manage to accomplish this in 10 years?”. The Greek man laughs and says, “
You see that road over there?”, the Italian man replies: “What road?”
