A young man at a construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone, based on his strength.  He especially made fun of one of the older workman. After several minutes, the older worker had had enough.

“Why don’t you put your money where your mouth is?” he said.  “I’ll bet a week’s wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to the other building that you won’t be able to wheel back.”

“You’re on, old man,” the young man replied. “Let’s see what you’ve got.”

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

    I think I’d have asked him to go and collect a long stand from the builders merchant, and a left handed wrench.
