Learn and laugh…

They’re still laughing about this at IBM:  

Apparently the computer giant decided to have some parts manufactured in Japan as a trial project. In the specifications, they set out that they will accept three defective parts per 10,000.

When the delivery came in there was an accompanying letter. “We, Japanese people, had a hard time understanding North American business practices. But the three defective parts per 10,000 have been separately manufactured and have been included in the consignment. Hope this pleases you.”

–May we strive to incorporate this level of perfection in all our daily activities. I for one know that when i see imperfection anywhere around me, my blood starts to boil.
