A Heart Warming Story

Truly a heart warming story about the bond formed between a little girl
and some construction workers. This makes you want to believe in the
goodness of people and believe there is hope for the human race.


A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant lot. One day a
construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot.

The young family's 6-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 construction crew, gems-in-the-rough all of
them, 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 a dollar. The little girl took this home to her mother who
said all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested that they take
the dollar pay she had received to the bank the next day to start a
savings account.

When they got to the bank the teller was equally impressed with the story
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've been working
with a crew building a house all week."

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

She replied, "I will, if those useless sons of b$tches at the lumber yard
ever bring us any drywall that's worth a sh$t."
