“What’s the Difference between a Mechanic and a Heart Surgeon?”

“What’s the Difference between a Mechanic and a Heart Surgeon?”

 

 

 

 

 

A mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the engine of a Harley Davidson motorcycle when he spotted a well-known heart surgeon wandering around the shop.

The mechanic shouts from across the garage, "Hey Doc, can I ask you a question?"

The surgeon a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, fix 'em, put 'em back in, and when I finish, it works just like new. So, how come I get such a small salary and you get the really big bucks, when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The surgeon paused, smiled and leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic, "Try doing it with the engine running."

Hi Joe... good one... great answer from the heart surgeon. I'd have never thought of it myself. The again, let's not forget that good car mechanics actually make quite good money these days and probably don't have years of medical school bills to pay off or heavy duty insurance coverage to carry!

Morning Joe.

I bet that left the mechanic speechless.  Besides, if he makes a mistake he can always go back in and fix it, not so for the surgeon
