But, with the woman's approach, all they needed was a wrench and a tape measure. Who carries a compass around with them?
Even better, without even leaving the office, one of them could've called the Mechanical Plant Department or Architectural Planning, and asked "What's the height of the flagpole outside the entrance to building 17?" They'd have the answer within a matter of months.
And, have you ever undone the bolts at the base of a flagpole? On your own?
I had a little bit to do with flagpoles in my time in the army, and I can assure you that she'd have needed both the engineers, at the very least, to hold the pole still, and then lower it, slowly.

I know a woman who always has a nice Swiss army knife and a tape measure with her, since she's in the interior design biz. She usually leaves the wrench and pliers to her helpers.
