Hired a guy about 2 months ago. Always late, loved his cell phone and cigarettes. Bad about safety equipment. I was always telling him to put on Safety glasses, or earplugs, or seatbelt. Hated it and would convienently forget every day. Told him last week it was either wear the stuff or be gone. He started wearing the stuff most of the time. Well, 2 weeks ago I hire another person...this guys friend. No experience at all. Both of em....LAZY. The first guy kept cutting corners on stuff. Trimming mostly. Would never trim enough and made it harder on the mowing person. I kept getting on him. Today, I told him, you either do it right or you will be fired. He said I was just trying to be hard on him. I said if you can't do it right, then I don't need you. He said, fine, I quit and threw my trimmer to the ground and headed to the truck. I made him go pick up the trimmer. He started yellin at me in the parking lot of one of my McDonalds I service. I told him get back to the truck and to keep it down... He said "I don't work for you no more". I said take off the shirt and get away from my truck then. Get this.....Then he said I needed to take him home right now. LOL. I said you better start calling someone cause I have a lot to finish and I am NOT driving you a half hour to the shop and coming back. Of course he told me I better, or else. His buddy, my other helper was stopped too, and I asked what his intentions were. He quit too. He kept yelling something about I have crap on you and am going to tell the labor board. Keep in mind, I give them a paycheck weekly, taxes witheld and do everything a legit corporation is supposed to do. I just grinned and I loaded the truck (half finished job) and left them there and went to the next job. Came back and finished a couple hours later. He called me and said he would be at my house friday morning at 7 am to get his check......I told him payday is Friday afternoon and if he showed up before then, you will be wasting a trip. I will give him his check when I get in from my route friday, which im figuring will be after 6 pm. LOL Why are these young white boys so damned lazy and so full of attitude?
