Meters or Feet – Whichever Way You Want it

A multinational team of engineers went to a site trip to assess site conditions for a planned facility. There were supposed to be six(6) engineers but one (1) failed to show up, leaving the number to just five (5). The team composed of 2 Americans, a South African, an Egyptian and a Filipino.

It was truly a good experienced that every time, any of the non-American engineers mention, say 10 meters, the American will say, that is about 30 feet. Or if the American will say, that distance is about 60, he means about 60 feet, not 60 meters.

Whichever you want it, there lots of conversion going on. Meters or feet, whichever you want it, as long as everybody understand each other, then there will be no problem.
