A young family moved into a house next to an empty plot where some building workers had started working building a house.
The young family’s 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and started talking with the workers.
She hung around and eventually the workers more or less adopted the little girl as a sort of project mascot.
They chatted with her 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 two dollars. The little girl took it to her mother .
“You must have worked very hard to earn all this”, said the Mother
The little girl proudly replied, “Yes, I worked every day with Steve and Wayne and Mike. We’re building a big house.”
“My goodness gracious” ,said the mother, “And will you be working again next week?”
The child thought for a moment and said,
“I think so. Provided those assholes at Hawkins deliver those fucking bricks on time.”
