A young boy wanted to get his first job. Searching the newspaper, he found an ad that a man was hiring for good pay.
Going to the address from the paper, he found the man's house and eagerly knocked on the door. Opening it, the man looked at the boy. "Yes?"
"Hi Mister. I'm here for the job!"
Thinking the boy was too young, he questioned the lad. "Oh. Well, it's a lot of work. Are you sure you can do it?"
Liking his spirit, the man decided to give the boy the job. "Well alright. I have buckets of paint and a brush. I want you to paint the porch. The whole porch has to be done though. Every bit."
The man looked from the right to the left of the whole front porch. There was furniture, flower pots, a coffee cup...he had only just put the ad out and didn't even have time to clear things off. Scratching his head, he looked back at the boy.
"Are you sure you can handle this son? It's really a lot of work."
"Oh yes I can do it Mister! No problem at all!"
Shrugging his shoulders, he gave the boy buckets of paint and the brush, then went back in the house.
Only a couple of hours later, his doorbell rang. Knowing that the boy had realized that it was too much work, he went to answer it.
When he got there though, the boy was covered in paint but the front porch hadn't been touched. Not even a chair was moved. Confused, the man looked at the boy.
"What happened? Why isn't anything done?"
"Well, I'm finished Mister!"
"Finished with what? You haven't even started!"
"But I'm finished! I even gave it two coats because I had so much extra paint left over. It wasn't hard at all like you said it would be."
Completely confused, the man rubbed his head. Just then the boy turned to look behind him and said, "Oh, but Mister, I hate to break it to you...but it's not a porch, it's a Lexus."
