    That might be what attracts the women because yes, it is evil :)

    Yeah, let the 'pros' handle this one. Maybe we should dress in suit and tie to please some folk, but as for me, FTS !

    p.s.: scrubs (if that's what I am) get paid as good if not better. Matter of fact, you might even get a bonus if you really look good, lol.

    Now see, I never go inside customer's house, to me that is a big no-no. Especially when it's a married woman alone at home, but really, never go inside, you dunno what's coming.

    Yeah I'm with you now - No drink or food (no really, not even a soda), never go inside their house, and how anyone could THINK of pool swimming after yard-work, lol, but I guess with employees anything is possible.
    Now the other thing I do is when it's time to speak to the customer, put the shirt back on first. If the customer walks out while you're working topless, well, you know... Lets just say, some approve, some don't, but it is also a great way to 'test' your customer and weed out the undesirables ... I mean, if topless is your thing ... Now if topless is NOT your thing, then don't do it.

    Hell now shorts eat your legs UP weed-eating, I do wear jeans at all times just for that reason but that's another story, and certainly nothing to do with professionalism, just personal preference.

    When I made that statement, I didn't mean those one time only people I can't control. But the every week people on my property would not be allowed to go without shirts. To me, that is just low class. A real business doesn't do work 1/2 nude.

    Shirt stays on!

    When i started in this trade, i had a guy working with me, it got hot, off came his shirt... :angry: i started to boil. He was older that me, so i let him do it for a while, about 1/2 an hour later :realmad: I could help myself "Scott please while you work with me wear your shirt" but it's hot, "i know but, it's my business".

    Cut it short- "Put your shirt back on or go home ya look like a slob" at the end of that day i payed him and let him go...........

    Scabs work dressed like that!

    I am a professional ! :cool2:

    Uniform always while working
