The following joke/funny does include strong lanquage at the end. Read at your own risk.

5 yr old's first pay check!

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 youn g 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 Home Depot ever deliver the fuckin' sheet rock..."

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