What a Story! - An Amusing Day on a Building Site




When Ricky was a student, he worked as a labourer on a building site during his Easter vacation. He wanted to save some money to pay for his summer holidays. Although he had to work very hard, he had many funny adventures. This is the story of one of his most amusing days when he was supposed to deliver wheelbarrow loads of liquid concrete to a skilled workman.
Ricky sometimes uses the word ‘cement’ when he means ‘concrete’. Cement is the dry powder which is mixed with sand, stones and water to make concrete.
