    Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a little

    5-year-old girl and some construction workers that makes you believe

    that we CAN make a difference when we give a child the gift of our

    time...

    A young family moved into a house next door 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 couple of dollars. The little girl took this home to her

    mother who said all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested

    that they take the two dollar "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 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 the

    crewbuilding the house next door to us. "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 damn sheet rock..."

    Stories like this just bring a tear to your eye, don?t they.

    Thats great, reminds me of...

    One Christmas morning a young boy was helping his mom prepare Christmas dinner. The mother was obviously very busy and to add to her stress the phone would not stop ringing. People calling to wish a happy holiday and see if they could bring anything for dinner. The mom finally took time to chat and forgot the ham in the oven. The caller heard her scream in anger and quickly asked "What, what happened?!? Is everything thing ok?". The mom was quick to respond, "NO, I BURNT THE DAMNED HAM". She did what she could with it to make it at least resemble something edible.

    Everybody finally gathered around the dinner table and started passing the food around. The young boy very politely asked "Can somebody pass the damned ham?" The child?s grandmother quickly responded "Just as soon as you pass the f&*@ing mashed potatoes"

    In that vein:
    A woman saw the little girl next door digging a large hole with a shovel. She asked "What are you doing?'" The little girl replied " I'm going to bury my dead goldfish". The woman responded that she thought that the hole was much too large for a goldfish. The little girl answered "that's because he's inside your fucking cat!".
