A young family moved into a house next door to an empty plot.
One day, a gang of building workers turned up to start building on the plot.
The 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 the child her very own hard hat and gloves, which thrilled her immensely.
At the end of the first week, the smiling builders presented her with a pay envelope containing £2 in 10p coins. The little girl took her 'pay' home to her mother who suggested that they take the money to the bank the next day to open a savings account. At the bank, the female 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 cashier.
The little girl proudly replied, "Yes, I worked every day with Steve and Wayne and Mike. We're building a big house."
"My goodness gracious," said the cashier, "And will you be working on the house again next week?
The child thought for a moment.







Then she said seriously:
"I think so. Provided those Wankers at Jewsons deliver the fucking bricks."
