Fixing The Car
When her car broke down, a woman called out a local mechanic to repair it. He lifted up the hood, looked in the engine, whacked something with a hammer and said: "Try it now."
To her amazement, the car started straight away.
"That's incredible," she said. "You've been here less than a minute and you've managed to fix it. I'm so grateful."
"All part of the job, madam. That'll be $250."
The smile vanished from the woman's face. "How much? How can you charge $250 when all you did was hit it with a hammer?"
"I can write you out an itemized bill if you like."
"Yes, please," she said firmly.
So he wrote out the bill and handed it to her. It read: "Hitting engine with hammer - $10. Knowing where to hit it - $240."
