A Gynecologist became 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 a local technical college, and signed up for evening classes, attended diligently, and learned all he could. When time for his final exams approached, the Gynecologist prepared carefully, and completed the exam with tremendous skill. When the results came back he was surprised he received a final score of 150%.
Fearing an error, he called the instructor saying “I don’t want to be ungrateful for such and outstanding grade, but I’m wondering if the was a mistake in the grade”.
The instructor said “During the final exam you took the engine apart perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total score. Then you put it back together perfectly which was worth 50% of the total score”.
After a pause the instructor added “I gave you another 50% because you did it all through the muffler, which I’ve never seen done in my entire career”.
