no it's not flawed. I don't wanna work for people who have a problem with my smoking or chewing habit.

if the neighbors aren't gonna hire me because I chew or smoke good, I don't wanna work them if that bothers them anyway. same with current clients who would me because there neighbor told them they saw me smoking or chewing. or anyone else in the city for that matter.

so it's not gonna hurt me. actually be doing me a favor.

Unless yall are in the truck with the guys, they are going to chew, if they chew. Count on it. You can have whatever policy you want, it is not that hard to hide.

Also, who cares, even if the homeowner is home and peeping through the blinds chances of them being able to see if your guy has a chaw in is slim and chances that they care is just as slim.

If I didn't see you spit, I'd never know.





Being "big" does not make one a professional.

The client is the boss...I'd love to drink while mowing,but that seems a little over the top..I'd rather make money and drink on my own time ...emphasis on making money and not messing with cash flow...
to each his own ...I wanna retire someday
