A teenager wanted to earn extra money, so she decided to do odd jobs for her wealthy neighbours. At the first house, the owner said: “Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?”

“$50,” she replied.

The man agreed and gave her the paint and brushes and went back in the house. The man’s wife overheard the conversation and asked him if she had realised that the porch goes all around the house. “She should have. She was standing on it.”

A short time later the teenager came to the door to collect her money. “You’ve finished already?” the man asked.

“Yeah, and I had paint left over so I gave two coats.”

Impressed the man reached for the money. “And by the way,” the teenager added. “It’s not a Porsche. It’s a Lexus.”
