Last week this 13 yr old kid (Santiago) came by the house, he asked if we needed any work done around the yard. I asked him a few question such as where does he live? where does he go to school? how are his grades? with these questions settled I finally said "sure, I always need something done in the yard."
He came back yesterday saying he had some free time and what would I like him to do so I had him pull weeds along the street and the side of the house. When he was done I asked if he wanted to come back when Lady Diane was home as I was sure she would have some chores for him and he said "yes I could come back on the weekend" I said "fine then, you do that and I'm sure there will be some work for you" I then asked him what I owed him for pulling the weeds and he said "nothing, I am doing this because my grandfather says I need to start learning what work is and when I get good at doing work then I can ask for payment." I gave him $5 and said "see you this weekend. He said he would be here either sat or sun depending on what his grandmother needed doing.
I tell you, the kids these days are worthless.
There ya go!
Good for Santiago and good for his grandpa too. (And also the crusty old codger who gave him $5 anyway.)
Good for him. Good for you for giving him an opportunity.
did you check his ID?
he could be on of them illegals.
(kids like ice cream, you know...)
he could be one of them illegals.
...Taking work from a Real American.
True story. Phone rings at my shop. Andy/Clubber answers "Studio Art."
"Is this a retail store?" "Um. yes."
"My son wants a summer job. Would you be interested in hiring him."
Seal up the borders! These Mexican illegals are gonna ruin it for our blue collar strata>
Should have given him a buck and a two minute water break. Granddad wanted him to find out about working for a living.
That's quite an amazing story, dys.
I can't quite get over it.
Now you & Diane have to worry about not exploiting this good child!
I predict it wont be long before some gun toting bible banger will acuse you of breaking child labour laws.... or molesting the kid.
