Paint The Porch

A not so bright guy, wanting to earn some money, decided to try to find some handyman-type work and started canvassing a wealthy neighborhood. He went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs for him to do.

“Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?”

The guy said “How about 50 dollars?”

The homeowner agreed and told him that the paint and ladders that he might need were in the garage.

The homeowner’s wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, “Does he realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?”

The homeowner replied, “He should. He was standing on the porch.”

A short time later, the guy came to the door to collect his money.

“You’re finished already?” the homeowner asked.

“Yes,” the guy answered, “and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.”

Impressed, the homeowner reached in his pocket for the $50.

“And by the way,” the guy added, “that’s not a Porch, it’s a Ferrari.”
