Builders...........

Post  Mr Bridger on Mon Jun 21, 2010 12:00 pm

This is a quick story about the bond formed between a little girl and a
group of building workers. It's allegedly true and makes you want to believe
in the goodness of people and that there is hope for the human race.


A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant building plot.

One day a gang of building workers turned up to start building a house on
the empty plot. 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 builders, all with hearts of
gold, more or less adopted the little girl as a sort of project mascot.
They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had tea and lunch
breaks, and gave her little jobs to do here and there to make her feel
important.

They even gave her very own hard hat and gloves.
At the end of the first week they presented her with a pay envelope
containing two pounds in 10p coins. The little girl took her 'pay' home to
her mother who suggested that they take the money she had received to the
bank the next day to start a savings account.

When they got to the bank the cashier was tickled pink listening to the
little girl telling her about her 'work' on the building site and the fact
she had a 'pay packet'. "You must have worked very hard to earn all this"
said the bank cashier.
The little girl proudly replied, "I worked all last week with the men
building a big house." "My goodness gracious," said the cashier, "Will you
be working on the house again this week, as well?"
The little girl thought for a moment and said................

"I think so. Provided those c*nts at Jewsons deliver the f**king bricks."
