A Doctor and a Mechanic – by Santosh Tripathi

A must read story of a mechanic and a doctor….A mechanic was removing the cylinder heads from the motor of a car when he spotted the famous heart surgeon in his shop, who was standing off to the side, waiting for the service manager to come to take a look at his car.

A mechanic was removing the cylinder heads from the motor of a car when he spotted the famous heart surgeon in his shop, who was standing off to the side, waiting for the service manager to come to take a look at his car.

The mechanic shouted across the garage, “Hello Doctor! Please come over here for a minute.”

The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to the mechanic.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked argumentatively, “Look at this engine… I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired and put them back”… So why do I get such a small salary? and u get such a huge sum….!

The doctor smiled at the mechanic and came close to his ear and said….


“TRY TO DO IT WHEN THE ENGINE IS RUNNING”.

The Rebound From The Mechanic

And now the mechanic understood the doctor’s sarcasm. He replied bluntly,

‘At least I could work on a dead engine and bring it back to life, could you do that with your dead patients?’ and the mechanic walked away briskly, leaving behind the doctor speechless.

Moral: Never underestimate any profession.
