Jennifer loved playing outdoors, but wished she had more kids to play with.
Then one day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot next to Jennifer's house.
Jenny 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. Jennifer didn't miss a day on the job.
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 second week they even presented her with a pay envelope containing a dollar.
Jennifer took this home to her mother who said all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested that they take the 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 Jennifer how she had come by her very own pay check at such a young age. Jenny proudly replied,"I've been working next door everyday with a construction crew. We're building a house".
"My goodness gracious", said the teller, "and will you be working on the house again this week too"?
Without missing a beat, Jennifer replied "I will if those useless ass-holes at the lumber yard ever bring us the fucking wood".
