A strong young man at a construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone when it comes to pure strength.
He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workers on his team. After several minutes of ranting, the older worker had had enough and challenged the cocksure young worker.
“Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is and challenge me to a strength competition,” he said. “I will bet an entire week’s pay 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 young boaster replied. ‘Let’s see what you got!”
The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said: “Alright, hop in.”
