    Truly a heart warming story about the bond formed between a little
    girl and some construction workers. This makes you want to believe in
    the goodness of people and believe there is hope for the human race.

    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 6-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 construction crew, gems-in-the-rough
    all of them, 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 dollar. The little girl took this home to her mother who said
    all the appropriate words of admiration and suggested that they take the
    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 with the story
    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've been working with a
    crew building a house all week."

    "My goodness gracious," said the teller, "and will you be working on the
    house again this week too?"

    She replied "I will if those useless sons of *****es at the lumber yard ever
    bring us any drywall that's worth a ****."
