I don't know what his problem was Jodi .... I did have that bad feeling though ..took him 3 days just to come in to see me but he always phoned and seemed to have a good reason .... the day that he was supposed to come in to work..no call, nothing... oh well...his loss .... i could have set him up in a very comfortable igloo.
I'm hiring double what I need to compensate for no shows and guys/girls that wont make it.... first one to be cut was today ...thats a whole story in itself. Lets just say that the last straw was straight gas in a blower :help: Blowers toast and so is he!
