An Arab Sheik was admitted to Hospital for heart surgery,
but prior to the surgery,the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arises.
As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so, the call went out.
Finally a Scotsman was located who had a similar blood type.
The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab.
After the surgery, the Arab ...sent the Scotsman as appreciation for giving his blood,
a new BMW, diamonds & a heap load of US dollars.
A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery.
His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again.
After the second surgery,
the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you card & a box of Quality Street chocolates.
The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated.
He phoned the Arab & asked him:
"I thought you would be generous again,
that you would give me a BMW, diamonds & money...
but you only gave me a thank-you card & a box of Quality Street."
To this the Arab replied: "Aye laddie, but I now have Scottish blood in my veins".
