He're another one (no offence to students) WDE.
Painting the Porch
A student, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided to hire himself out as a 'handy-man' and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood. He went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for him to do.
'Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,' he said, 'How much will you charge me?'
Delighted, the student quickly responded, 'How about $50?'
The man agreed and told him that the paint brushes and everything he would need was in the garage.
The man's wife, hearing the conversation said to her husband, 'Does he realize that our porch goes ALL the way around the house?'
He responded, 'That's a bit cynical, isn't it?'
The wife replied, 'You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those stories of student pranksters we've been hearing about on the news lately.'
Later that day, the student came to the door to collect his money.
'You're finished already?' the startled husband asked.
'Yes, the student 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 him along with a ten dollar tip.
'And by the way, ' the student added, 'it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus.'
