A Turn of the Screw

A Turn of the Screw


A Turn of the Screw

Once, there was a factory owner whose production line inexplicably broke down, costing him millions a day.

Finally, he tracked down an expert who took out a screwdriver, turned one screw, and then the factory cranked back to life. The expert presented him a £10,000 bill.

Affronted, the factory owner demanded an itemised invoice. The expert was happy to oblige: “For turning a screw: £1; for knowing which screw to turn: £9,999.”
