Change of profession

Filed under: Uncategorized — sirlaugh @ 8:48 pm

A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and HMO
paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where
skillful hands would be beneficial; he decided to become a mechanic.

He went to the local technical college signed up for evening classes,
attended diligently, and learned all he could.

When the time of the practicalexam approached, the gynecologist prepared
carefully for weeks, and completed the exam with tremendous skill.

When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a
score of 150%.

Fearing an error, he called the instructor, saying, “I don’t want to appear
ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is an
error in the grade.

The instructor said, “During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly,
which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine back together
again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.” After a pause, the
instructor added, “I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through
the muffler, which I’ve never seen done in my entire career.”
