Don't read the last line if you easily offended

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 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 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 two pounds 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 on time.'

That sounds one of mine, our yam


What one of your kids? I remember my daughter telling me when she was about the same age as the child in this joke that she didn't mind being a "little bugger" because people always laughed when they said it - the innocence of kids :D

p.s. Thank you so much for the warning - I removed my coffee mug from the vicinity of the computer. It's taken me a while to learn that if I don't want to clear up coffee splutter off my screen, I can't sip or eat when reading some blogs :)


Brilliant! That reminds me of our granddaughter a few weeks ago when I was in hospital. She stayed for a couple of days with her aunt, my elder daughter. They were talking and daughter called littl'un tuppence. "Nanny calls me that", piped up Chloe.

"Does she call you anything else?" Asked daughter.

'"Lazy bones", replied Chloe with no hesitation!

Oops! In defence, we were (and still are) having major tidying up issues :-) Alison


:D :D

Having to rely solely on the donkey breathing technique now after reading the above.

Wonderful as usual x

Absolutely brill love it "out of the mouths of babes and sucklings". I have saved this and it will be distributed to many parts of the planet that I have worked and still have friends. It deserves recognition.
