Think of it as them doing you a favor: You don't have to trim for like a month while it grows back.

There was a lot more than that from him, that has made a bad image for the company over the past month, it's just the part that effects me because I have to try to fix it and I'm not the boss, so firing has nothing to do with me. And he's not new, he's just lazy. After we heard about it we had a family member go in a vehicle he didn't recognize and see why it was getting bad, he was one hand stiff arming with the trimmer around...

Wait, so you're just an employee? You don't have any room to say anything. Sounds like you're just mad now because you have to do more work. Besides that, you don't "fix" a trimmed edge, you let it grow back.
