The strong young man at the construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workmen. After several minutes, the older worker had had enough.
"Why dont you put your money where your mouth is," he said. "I will bet a weeks wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you wont be able to wheel back."
"Youre on, old man," the braggart replied. "Lets see what you got."
The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right. Get in."
