A 5 year old's first job...
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 fuckin' sheet rock."

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

Sounds like she was hanging out with 'Taer during the inspection.

I love when I read something that actually makes me laugh out loud at work. Everyone thinks I am crazy again, or that my work is alot more fun than theirs. hehe.

good joke. Nothing funnier than cute kids repeating vulgarities. Unless, of course, they do it in front of your mother-in-law.

Thanksgiving 1993, my daughter was about 2 and a half. Grandparents and great grandparents all there. In the middle of praying she knocks her cup off her highchair tray and says "Son of a Bitch!" plain as day....I just kind of slid under the table as all eyes opened and heads turned directly at me....

When I was about 4 years old, maybe younger, my father took me to watch a building being demolished in downtown. I saw the wreckingball slam into the brick facade and leave an enormous, gaping hole in the building. My response was
"Somebody's mom is going to be MAD! Somebody's mom is going to say 'Oh God Damn!'"

My dad had some choice words for "somebody's mom" that evening.

Hehehe, my first one was I told the daycare lady, "So and So ran out of that room like a bat out of hell." When she reported it to my mom, my tried her damndest to not giggle, since she was the one who used that expression A LOT.

When I was about 10 or 11 my parents used to go to the race track a couple times a year. Instead of getting a baby sitter they'd just take my brother and I along to watch the horses. In order to keep us quiet for the day we were allowed to place one $2 bet while we were there. During one of the trips I managed to hit the Daily Double and won about $75.

A couple of days later my mother and I were out shopping for sneakers and I insisted on paying for my own. I handed the nice lady behind the counter a $20 bill and she commented that I must have worked hard for all that money. I responded, "Oh, no. I won this at the track". My mother wanted to crawl under a rock.

Well, knowing your brother, it was quite warranted.


I thought my aunt's ex-husband's actual given name was Asshole till I was about 12. NO ONE ever said his real name. NO ONE, not even she around their child. (In her defense, he was an abusive ass and put my dad in the hospital for defending her.)
