Submerged DixieChopper

Well...My favorite crew has done it again...put another Chopper in the water..
This time they got me...I instructed them not to crank the engine when they called and told me they put a mower in the lake...They figured that because the engine wasnt completely under water...they could go ahead and drive it on the trailer...These are the same guys that figured how to put the mower into the lake...Maybe they figured I wouldnt find out...They trashed the hydro's..

The tank went under and got a few quarts of water in it..When they cranked the engine ...the pumps circulated and mixed all that water into the hydro system...Where were these guys when I had my shop, I"d still be in business...

WANTED...CREW LEADER IN TAMPA AREA ...MUST HAVE GOOD DL AND PASS THE SQUARE PEG AND ROUND HOLE TEST.....PM ME.....DFWP....

The key to putting a square peg in a round hole is the use of a BFH! Do I get the job?

Trying to stay that way...This crew has done about $7000 to $10000 damage in the past few months...not counting today's mess...
Everytime they get rid of the crew leader..they promote from within...or hire somebody that needs OJT...that gets trained by members of that crew..
Then... they usually run them off within a week or 2...
Just trying to get a few resume's to fill a position that has been vacant too long...
If they keep tearing stuff up...iI may just shop my own resume...while all my certs are still up to date....
