Best Construction Jokes

This arrogant young guy has recently started work at a construction site and ever since he started he’s been bragging that he could outdo anyone based on his superior strength. He’s been making fun of one of the older workmen in particular.

Eventually, the older worker has had enough and says, “Tell you what – why don’t you put your money where your mouth is? I’ll bet you a week’s wages that I can take something over to that other building in this wheelbarrow and you won’t be able to wheel it back.”

The young guy laughs confidently, “You’re on, old man. Let’s see what you’ve got.”

So the old guy grabs the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, he nods to the young man as he says with a smile, “Alright. Get in.”

These two blonde carpenters are working on a house. The one who’s nailing down the timber keeps reaching into his nail pouch for nails and every time he pulls one out he either throws it over his shoulder or nails it in.

The other worker is intrigued by this and eventually asks him, “Why do you keep throwing those nails away?”

The first worker replies, “If I pull a nail out of my pouch and it’s pointed toward me, then I throw it away because it’s defective. If it’s pointed toward the house, then I nail it in!”

The second blonde is amazed at the other guy’s stupidity and yells at him, “You idiot! The nails pointed toward you aren’t defective! They’re for the other side of the house!”

The boss says that for their first day on the job, the Russian is in charge of concrete, the Mexican is in charge of wood, and the Chinese man is in charge of supplies.

The boss then leaves and comes back a few hours later to check up on his new workers.

He walks over to the Russian, and all the concrete mix is stacked up nice and orderly. The boss tells him, “Great work!” and moves on.

He walks up to the Mexican and sees that all the wood is stacked in a perfect pile, so he says, “wonderful job!” and moves on.

Funny Construction Worker Jokes

These 3 construction workers – an Aussie, an Irishman and an American – are about to have lunch while sitting on the 40th floor of a construction site.

The Aussie opens his lunch box and sees a Vegemite sandwich. He groans and says, “You know what, if my wife makes me another Vegemite sandwich I’m going to jump off this damn building.”

The American then opens his lunch box to find a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. He says to the other two guys, “You know what, if my wife makes me another peanut and jelly sandwich I’m jumping off too.”

The Irishman then opens his lunch box and sees a ham sandwich. He in turn says to the other two, “If I get another ham sandwich I’m jumping as well.”

The next day at lunch the Aussie opens his lunch box to discover another Vegemite sandwich so, true to his word, he jumps.

The American opens his lunch box too and sees another peanut butter and jelly sandwich, so he also jumps off.

The Irishman then opens his lunch box and finds another ham sandwich. So he also jumps too.

The funeral is a week later and all their wives are gathered together in a circle crying.

The wife of the Aussie says “Why, oh why, did I only make him Vegemite sandwiches? I could have changed it at least once and he’d still be here.”

The American wife says “I should have made a different sandwich and not forced him to have the same one every day.”
