Saturday morning he went to the hardware store and bought the paint and a couple of brushes. When he returned home he made a sandwich, sat down to eat it, turned on the television and tuned in the football game. By the time he finished lunch he was engrossed in the game, so decided he'd wait until next week to paint his porch.
About that time the doorbell rang. He went to the door to find a neighborhood kid he knew. The kid told him he was trying to earn some spending money, did the man have any jobs he could do to earn some money? The man was a little aggravated at having his game interrupted but thinking quickly he said, "How'd you like to paint my porch? I'll pay you $50." The kid said "Sure, I've painted a lot for my folks." So the man gave him the bucket of paint and a brush, and said, "The porch is around back, go ahead and get started."
The man sat back down to watch the game. About an hour later the doorbell rang again. The man went to the door and there stood the kid. The man said "you finished painting the porch already?"
To which the kid replied "Yessir! It's all painted. But it's not a porch, it's a Mercedes!"
