A gynecologist was getting sick of his job and decided that he needed a career change. He always enjoyed tinkering with engines, and thought he’d become a mechanic. So, he enrolled in mechanics’ school.
He did fairly well right until the end of the semester. The final test was to strip the engine completely and reassemble it-obviously back into perfect working order. So our gynecologist friend did the test and waited anxiously for the results.
The day he received his grade, he got quite a surprise. He got 150%!
He quickly phoned the instructor and queried the mark.
The instructor said, “No, no, that’s right. First I gave you full credit, or 50%, for stripping down the engine – a very thorough and efficient job. Next, I gave you full credit, or 50%, for reassembling it – a fantastic job, really. One of the best I’ve ever seen. And then, I gave you a bonus for doing it all through the muffler.”
