    do you do this or let your employees smoke while working or go shirtless while working? saw a guy the other day doing both, cutting with a mower shirtless with a cigarette in his mouth. i wouldnt ever do it in a million years. it looks so unprofessional. thoughts?

    How did the grass look when he was done? Was he efficient while mowing?

    At my Banks and Resturants and thats about all I do is pick up butts. My house sets along one of our major highways to town. Same thing butts and cig packs. Would just like to collect them see someone throw some down then take a years worth and dump them in their yard. Then see what they think. Wouldnt hire a person who smokes and cant stand to be around someone who does. Just cant stand the smell. And they should have their cloths on also.
