Get Out Your Kleenex

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 turned up to start building a house on the
empty lot.The young family’s 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door 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, 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 first week, they even presented her with a pay envelope containing a ten-dollar check. The little girl took this home to her mother who suggested that she take the ten-dollar “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 paycheck at such a young age. The little girl proudly replied, “I worked last week with a work 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
ass*&^s at Home Depot ever deliver the f%$%*n’ sheet rock. “Kind of brings a tear to the eye–doesn’t it?

    LMAO! I didn’t expect that! Hysterical.

  2. Ah, the construction trade responsible for the construction of a foul mouthed little girl.

    A general contractor considers a construction worker good, if he shows up on time and is sober; A construction worker considers a general contractor good if his checks don’t bounce — hopefully, Caca mouth here didn’t get a check from the general contractor.

    A few years pass;

    Caca mouth is in school and she has a terrible reputation.

    The teacher says, “Ok class, we are going to run through the alphabet, and for every letter we must give an example of a word that starts with that letter.”…”A!”

    Caca raises her hand.

    The teacher says to herself, “self, do not call on her she’ll say ass!”…”Johnny, stop picking your nose and give me a word beginning with the letter “A” — “Apple teacher,” says the whimp Johnny — “Very good Johnny,” the teacher says.


    Caca raises her hand, and gets more demonstrative, “oo” “OO,” “pick me you old “illegitimate, “female dog,” Caca says to her self…But the teacher doesn’t fall for it and ignores Caca’s pleas.

    And so it goes until the class gets to the letter “R,” and by this time Caca has settled down. So the teacher thinks and cannot come up with a dirty word that begins with “R,” and therefore picks Caca, who by now has lost interest.

    “Caca,” the teacher says, “a word that begins with the letter “R” please.”

    “Hmmm,” Caca contemplates, and then answers…”Rat — A big freaking (I cleaned it up) rat.”

    I love your sense of humor. If you ever divorce Gracie, let me know.

    I have read this about three times, and apparently all three times my brain cells were too tired to have a reaction. After reviewing the above comments, I find myself still without a witty thing to say. It was a cute story though and GMS has done it again…

    Hey did Caca mouth get her little kids apron from Home Depot?

  6. madmouser says:

    I think GMS is trying to get him a harem. He is attracting more women than you can count. But, I got him first.

  7. Hey girlfriend — according to my wife, she owes nothing to the feminist movement, since she took me off the market years ago. She claims she made a lot of women happy when she drugged me and I awoke married without remembering a thing. She also claims, some women owe her big time because she’s doing their time.

    Don’t tell her I said so, but I think Theo has the hots for me.

  8. ladyconklin says:

    Well it seems as though you two fight like a married couple. Careful though, Lewis might get a tad jealous. Really must you all pick on this poor innocent girl. Have you no shame…

  9. ladyconklin, “your Grace,” shoo! shoo! — If you listen real close, you can actually hear my skin crawling at the thought of being married to a woman like Theo…Man you want to talk about a segment on “America’s Most Wanted” waiting to happen after one of us snapped.

    She truly does feel like one of the persecuted people she spoke of, which is abject nonsense.

  10. ladyconklin says:

    GMS…thank you for your comments. I had to work today and it was day from hell. I love your sense of humor and I need the giggle you just provided me. Once again you have made me smile and I have to be honest, I love the cat fight that’s going on with you, Theo, and Cybil. What a hoot. Keep it going. I’ve become addicted now and can’t wait to see what the latest comments are.

  11. Thanks, “Your Grace,” I enjoy your comments also.

    All I can say about Theo at this point is, “some one needs to stick a fork in her, because I believe she could be done???” —

    — or,

    “a tooth pick to see if the cake batter sticks to it.”
