Interesting modern variant on the version I heard....
A man's washing machine broke down so he called the plumber.
The plumber looks at it for a few minutes then takes a hammer
out of his toolkit. He gently taps a fixing and the machine starts
working. He presents a bill for $50. The man is shocked, you
only tapped it with a hammer how can you justify that?
The plumber amends the bill: $1 for hitting with hammer,
$49 for knowing where to hit, and how hard.
