| Humor | Heart Surgeon | 1935 Limousine | open drivers compartment | Educational |
I am finally back to writing on IBO. I have completed most of the new
project and have a little time to write.
I have decided to share a little humor with you. This is an old one which
I have heard many times and I can't remember when I heard it first. However, I think it also has some educational value.
A heart surgeon had developed a new operating procedure that would cut down the time that heart surgery would take. He began to make more money lecturing on his new procedure than actually using the procedure. So he decided to lecture full time.
He hired a driver and purchased a limousine. After about six months of lecturing, his driver turned to him and said, "You know, this is not completely fair."
"What do you mean?"
"Well, you get paid $50,000 every time you do this lecture, and that's more than I get paid in a year." complained the driver.
The surgeon explained that the procedure was very complicated and he and only he could explain it.
"That's not true. I've heard your lecture so often, I know I could deliver it just as well."
So the driver and the surgeon traded places. The driver gave a wonderful presentation and answered many questions. Finally a member of the audience stood and asked a very complexes question.
The driver responded. "You know, I have done this lecture 187 times, and I have never been asked such and easy question. As a matter of fact, that question is SO basic that I am going to let my driver answer it."
Yes, It is good to stick your neck out once in a while because not trying to step forward will not advance you. But at the same time, keep in mind that
someone might help you as they may have more experience to help you succeed.
Yes, it is coming, just around the corner.
P.S. I hope I can get it done! Tomorrow is our 57 th Anniversary!
I am working on a special PR about it.
