Something to Ponder

There is one story that i forgot to include it before, hehe...

There was an engineer who had an exceptional gift for fixing all things mechanical. After serving his company loyally for over 30 years, he happily retired.

Several years later the company contacted him regarding a seemingly

Impossible problem they were having with one of their multimillion dollar machines.

They had tried everything and everyone else to get the machine to work but to no avail. In desperation, they called on the retired engineer who had solved so many of their problems in the past.

The engineer reluctantly took the challenge. He spent a day studying the huge machine. At the end of the day, he marked a small “X” in chalk and the machine worked perfectly again.

The company received a bill for RM 50, 000.00 from the engineer for his service.

They demanded an itemized accounting of his charges. the engineer responded briefly:

“One chalk mark RM 1, knowing where to put it RM 49, 999.00”
