A Mexican, recently arrived in the US, wanting to earn some money, decides to become a handy-man…

…and starts looking for some work in an up-scale neighborhood nearby.

He goes to the front door of the nearest house and asks the owner, if he had any odd jobs for him to do.

“Well, you can paint my porch, how much will you charge?” the owner says.

The Mexican responds, “How about $50?”

The owner says “Fine, there’s a can of brown paint and brushes in the garage.”

The owner’s wife, inside the house, overhearing the conversation asks her husband, “Does he realize that the porch goes all around the house? That’s a whole day’s job!!”

The man replies, “He should; he was standing on it. Not my problem if he didn’t pay attention.”

A short time later, the Mexican comes to the door and asks for the $50.

“You’ve finished already?” the husband asks.

“Yes,” he replies, “and there was paint left over, so I gave it two coats.”

Impressed, the man reaches into his pocket for the money and hands it to him.

“And by the way,” the Mexican adds, “it’s not a Porsche, it’s BMW"
