5 Year Olds First Job

Filed under: — Scott @

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 young
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 lit tle gi rl 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 f _ ckin’ sheet rock.’

Kind of brings a tear to the eye – doesn’t it?
