Painting the Porch

> A teenager, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer,
> decided to hire herself out as a 'handy-woman' and started canvassing a nearby
> well-to-do neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house,
> and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do.
>
>
> 'Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,' he said, 'How much
> will you charge me?'
>
> Delighted, the girl quickly responded, 'How about $50?'
>
>
> The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes and everything she would
> need was in the garage. The man's wife, hearing the conversation said
> to her husband, 'Does she realize that our porch goes ALL the way around
> the house?'

>
> Later that day, the girl came to the door to collect her money.
>
>
> 'You're finished already?' the startled husband asked.

> 'Yes, she replied, and I even had paint left over, so I gave it
> two coats.'
>
> Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed it to
> her along with a ten dollar tip.
>
> 'And by the way, ' the girl added, 'it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus.'
