The Cardiologist & The Motor Mechanic

A motorcycle mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a BMW M3 when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.

The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the garage,

"Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"

The cardiologist, a bit surprised walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine.

I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back in,

and when I finished, it worked just like new.

So how is it that I make £24,000 a year and you make £1.7million when you and I are basically doing the same work?"

The cardiologist paused, leaned over and then whispered to the mechanic;

"Try doing it with the engine running”.
