5 surgeons are taking a coffee break:
1st surgeon says, "Accountants are the best to operate on because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered."
2nd surgeon says, "Nah, librarians are the best. Everything inside them is in alphabetical order."
3rd surgeon says, "Try electricians, man! Everything inside them is color coded."
4th surgeon says, "I prefer lawyers. They're heartless, spineless, gutless, and their heads and butts are interchangeable."
5th surgeon says, "I like engineers.. they always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end."
前四個外科醫生說的話很容易理解，但第五個外科醫生說的話就沒那麼容易理解了，到底 have a few parts left over at the end 的英文是甚麼意思?
The 5th surgeon likes the fact that he does not have to be careful if he forgets to put something back. The surgeon likes that he does not need to worry about missing a little piece or thing here and there when operating on engineers because engineers will understand.
"I have a few parts left over" 的意思就是 "I have a few parts that I should have used, but I did not use them."
以下是用 left over 的例句:
When working on a machine I always have left over screws and other little parts. Trying to figure out where they belong in the machine in the very end is a pain. However, engineers do not worry about it because the machine will work even without every little screw.
