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 & 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 and a box of Chocolates.The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated.He phoned the Arab and 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 and a box of Chocolates."To this the Arab replied: "Aye laddie, but I now have Scottish blood in ma veins".
