A surgeon is planning on marrying his girlfriend, but her father refuses to allow him to do so.
After months of persuasion, the surgeon has gotten no-where closer to getting married, even though he’s done nothing to upset his girlfriend’s father.
But one day while at his normal job at the hospital, the surgeon receives news that the father is on his way to the hospital in an ambulance, as he is suffering from a heart attack. Despite their rocky relationship, the surgeon pulls on a pair of gloves and prepares to do his part to save his life.
After an hour of operating, the surgeon walks out of the operating room to talk to his girlfriend:
‘Great news! The operation was successful, and your father is in a much more stable condition! As I was walking out, he was already strong enough to tell me that he is grateful for my help, and approves of our marriage!’
Months pass, and the father has changed completely. He displays his newfound love for his new stepson, showering him with gifts and attention, and loves to refer to him as son. The surgeons now-wife asks her new husband:
‘My dad’s completely changed his attitude towards you! How did you do it?’
‘What can I say? I guess I know my way around people’s hearts.’
