Mama Said Knock You Out...

I was talking to a guy this morning - and this is true, because I couldn't make this up - said he just started a business this spring. He had an employee but he was unrelaible and too much trouble to deal with. He needed someone fast to help because he was overloaded.

His Mom offered to help three days a week. They were at one of his best accounts when his Mom got into an argument with the client's wife. He ran over to them and broke up the argument. He felt his Mom was wrong and he sided with the client.

Without warning, his Mom turned and shot him a left hook to the jaw. Knocked him to his butt right on their drive way. She walked to the truck and insisted he drive her home.

Now I truly know what they mean when they say "never hire family".

She would probably be good at collecting from dead beats.

Thats what I thought, she would be good at collecting, but once you got the money she'd kick yer butt and take it for herself.
If you want people to notice your faults, start giving advice.
