A 5-year-old's First Job

Post by Tweetey55 on Mon 03 Aug 2009, 9:06 pm

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 began to build a house on the empty lot. The family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in the goings-on 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 during 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 Home Depot ever deliver the f----n' sheet rock."

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

lol!
I worked with a guy in Ct years ago who had a nasty mouth on him. He was funny but had a temper.
He told us when his daughter was 4 someone cut them off at an intersection....this was before seat belt laws.....the little girl was standing on the front passenger seat and was thrown to the floor. She jumped up, stuck her head out the window and yelled...."You stupid cocksucker"!
He said he knew where she got it from. Him.

True story.

My dad's favorite phrase was when someone blew the horn at him he would say "blow it out your ass". When I learned to drive, I said that, and he about lost it!
