Duh. You only have one heart, so they CAN'T cut off the wrong one!

So THERE. I win.

That's exactly my point, Lisa: I only have one heart (some don't even have
one!), I can't take a chance. If you're incompetent operating on my foot, I'll
hop around on my other foot for the rest of my life. If I let you work on my
heart, you might kill me. If you can't write a perfect ONE PAGE resume, how can
I let you kill my company's image by writing a shotty SEVEN HUNDRED PAGE manual
for my product?

I guess it all depends on our standards - some have very low standards, but I
happen to have very high standards.
