Her First Job             Jokes  /  Back Home

Thanks to Mary Lou for sending this one!

Here's a truly heartwarming 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.

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 ten dollars.  The little girl took this home to her
mother who suggested that she take her ten dollars '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 Lowe's ever
deliver the f***in' sheet rock...

Kind of brings a tear to the eye - doesn't it?
