Painting the Porch

Daryll had been homeschooling for close to two years. Needless to say, he was getting pretty desperate for money. He decided to go to the nicer, richer neighborhood up on the hill and look for odd jobs as a handyman.

Well, the first house he came to, a man answered the door and told Daryll, "Yeah, I have a job for ya. How would you like to paint the porch?"

"Sure, that sounds great!" said Daryll.

"Well, uh, how much do you want me to pay you?" said the man.

"Is fifty bucks all right?" Daryll asked.

"Yeah, that's great. You'll find all the paint and ladders you'll need in the garage."

The man went back into his house to his wife, who had been listening.

"Fifty bucks! Does he know the porch goes all the way around the house?" asked the wife.

"Well he must, he was standing right on it!" her husband replied.

About 30 minutes later, Daryll knocked on the door. "I'm all finished," he told the surprised homeowner. The man was amazed.

"You painted the whole porch?"

"Yeah," Daryll replied, "I even had some paint left over, so I put on two coats!" The man reached into his wallet to pay Daryll.

"Oh, by the way," said Daryll, "that is not a Porch, it's a Ferrari!"
