Like a Surgeon



Morris was removing some engine valves from a car on the lift when
he spotted the famous heart surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey, who was
standing off to the side, waiting for the service manager.

Morris, somewhat of a loud mouth, shouted across the garage, "Hey
DeBakey! Is dat you? Come over here a minute."

The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to where Morris was
working on a car. Morris in a loud voice, all could hear, said
argumentatively, "So Mr. Fancy Doctor, look at this work. I also
take valves out, grind 'em, put in new parts, and when I finish this
baby will purr like a kitten. So how come you get the big bucks,
when you and me are doing basically the same work?"

DeBakey, grinning as he walked away, said softly to Morris, "Try doing
your work with the engine running."
