A little tale to make you smile

This is a quick story about the bond formed between a little girl and a
>group of building workers. It's allegedly true and makes you want to
>believe in the goodness of people and that there is hope for the human
>race.
>
>A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant building plot.
One
>day Willie and a gang of building workers turned up to start building
a
>house on the empty plot. The young 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 her very own hard hat and gloves.
>
>At the end of the first week they presented her with a pay envelope
>containing two pounds in 10p coins. The little girl took her 'pay'
home to
>her mother who suggested that they take the money she had received to
the
>bank the next day to start a savings account.
>
>When they got to the bank the 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 bank
cashier.
>The little girl proudly replied, "I worked all last week with the men
>building a big house."
>
>"My goodness gracious," said the cashier, "Will you be working on the
house

>again this week, as well?" The little girl thought for a moment and
said,
>
>"I think so. Provided those b**tards at Jewson deliver the f**king
bricks."

One of my first ever jobs was working for the original Jewson Brothers - Willie and Redmond when all they had was 2 depots, one in Plymouth and the other in Norwich. Sadly they both passed on before they saw how big their empire really became. Still think of them very fondly - lovely blokes the both of them.



PS. They would have laughed at that one too! :laugh:
