A Giant Ship’s Engine Repair Man Story

A giant ship’s engine broke down and no one could repair it, so they hired a Mechanical Engineer with over 30 years of experience.
He inspected the engine very carefully, from top to bottom. After seeing everything, the engineer unloaded his bag and pulled out a small hammer.
He knocked something gently. Soon, the engine came to life again. The engine has been fixed!
A week later the engineer mentioned to the ship owner that the total cost of repairing the giant ship was £20,000.
“What?!” said the owner. “You did almost nothing. Give us a detailed bill.”
The Engineer replied him “The answer is simple:”
Tap with a hammer: £2
Know where to tap and how much to tap: £19,998
The importance of appreciating one’s expertise and experience…because those are the results of struggles, experiments and even tears.
If I do a job in 30 minutes it’s because I spent 20 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.
The problem with today’s society is they do not value specialist skills and experience.
