Odd Jobs A neighborhood kid was looking for ways to earn money. He knocked on the door of one house, and when the man answered the boy asked, "Hey mister, got any odd jobs I can do?" The man indeed had a job for the boy to do. He handed the boy a can of red paint and a brush. "Paint my porch." The boy was eager to do a good job and the man went back inside. A couple hours later, the boy knocked on the door again. "Okay, mister, I'm done painting. But I gotta tell ya, that's not a Porsche, it's a Lamborghini."
