40 Years Experience

40 Years Experience

A ship engine failed and no one could fix it, so they brought in a chap with 40 years experience.

He inspected the engine very carefully, top to bottom.
After looking things over, the guy reached into his bag and pulled out a small hammer.

He gently tapped something. Instantly, the engine burst back into life.

The engine was fixed!

7 Days later the owners got his bill for £10,000.
“What?!” the owners said. “You hardly did anything. Send us an itemised bill.”

The reply simply said:
Tapping with a hammer: £2
Knowing where to tap: £9,998

Don’t ever underestimate experience. You cannot buy it! You have to earn it…
