The mechanic and the surgeon

A Lexus mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a LS460 when he spotted a well-known cardiac surgeon in his garage.  The surgeon was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the garage, "Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"

The cardiac surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, "So Doc, look at this engine.  I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged, and then put everything back in, and when I finished, it worked just like new.  So how is it that I make £38,000 a year and you make £500,000 when you and I are doing basically the same work?

The cardiac surgeon paused, leant over and calmly says to the mechanic.....

Try doing it with the engine running."
