5-YEAR-OLD'S FIRST PAY CHECK

Here's a truly heart-warming story about the bond formed between a little 5-year-old girl and some construction workers that will make you believe that we all can make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time. Love the ending!

A young family moved into a house, next to a vacant lot. One day, a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot.The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers.

Eventually the construction crew, all of them "gems-in-the-rough," more - or - less, adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her feel important.

At the end of the first week, they even presented her with a pay envelope containing $10.The little girl took this home to her mother who suggested that she take her $10 "pay" she'd received to the bank the next day to start a savings account.

When the girl and her mom got to the bank, the teller was equally impressed and asked the little girl how she had come by her very own pay check at such a young age.The little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with a real construction crew building the new house next door to us."

"Oh my goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be working on the house again this week, too?

"The little girl replied, "I will, if those assholes at Home Depot ever deliver the fuckin' drywall..."

5. Hmmm I have a construction story as well...

Billy was antsy and in the way so his mother said, “Billy, why not go outside. They are building a house next door. Go watch them, maybe you’ll learn something.

Billy was gone a long time. Several hours. When he came home his mom asked if he had learned anything.
Billy says, “Sure did. I learned find the gawd damn tape measure, and mark the fuckin’ line. Then you take the shitten saw and cut that mutherfrucker. But when you nail the son-of-bitch up, it’s a c***hair off so you take that kochsucker down and start the crap all over again.

Billy’s mom was aghast. 😡 and said, “Billy that’s just terrible. You go up to your room and wait til your father gets home.

Eventually Billy hears the car drive in. He hears muffled voices and then footsteps to Billy’s bedroom door. His father comes in and says: What’s this about what you learned at the construction site?

Billy repeats... shittin board, mutherf don’t fit Shave the c-hair and nail the kochsucker back up....

Dad gets angry: “ Billy that’s terrible. You march yourself out to the yard and get me a switch.
Billy looks at his dad and says: Fuck you, that’s the electrician’s job.

9. True story about my boy (now pushing 50)

When he was 4 or so he was playing with a little truck , pushing over soldiers and mowing down toy houses set up on the kitchen floor. My wife's Great Aunt Bertha was sitting at the table and we were having a very sophisticated , cultured conversation about this and that. Now Bertha was a stodgy sort of person, prim and proper and all that. She looked down at little Joey playing with his truck and said, "Now isn't that the cutest thing."

And my kid said, without looking up at her and concentrating on his game, "It may be cute to you, but it's bullshit to me."

To this day, I never heard anyone laugh so loud and long as Bertha did that day.

but the last line was slightly different

The little girl replied, "I will, if those assholes at Home Depot ever deliver the fucking sheetrock!"

It's a good joke!
