Our production manager just came into my office asking about linoleum. he wanted to know how long it was. i told him it is typically 96'. he responds, "oh good then he can get at least 3 floors out of it. He can cut 3 at least 32'." i very jokingly said, "hey, nice job" and then it happened... he said "yeah, but we'll still have 6 feet left over."
i had nothing to say. i fear he was serious.
