Old is not dumb or weak - old is just old!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals.

                 

A strong young man at a construction site was bragging that he could out-do anyone in a feat of strength.  He made his case by making fun of one of the older workmen.

 

After several minutes, the older worker had enough. “Why don't you put your money where your mouth is,” he said. “I'll bet you a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that building that you won't be able to wheel back.”

 

“You're on, old man,” the braggart replied. “Let's see you do it.”

 

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, “All right, Dumbo, get in.”

Never mess with old people!

That is always a great one.  It is like one of those brain teasers that I can never get.

When I finally realized who he was talking to when he said "Dumbo", it brought a big smile to my face.

Paul:  It sounds like a wheelbarrow just might be the closing tool I have been searching for all these years.  Thanks so much for the tip.
