    i did a small landscape job today with my trainee. the couple who owned the home were cool, fun to talk to. they hung out on the front steps while we worked. i estimated the job, i planned the job. i sold the job, i did alot of the work, but, not as much as him. at one point, on the clients front lawn, he turned his head, put his finger over one nostrel, and blew out the other nostrel, all over the lawn. i damn near took a fit. is this acceptible?

    Not in front of a client, but if nobody is around, I tend to do the old farmer trick and turn my head and blow a load out.

    no.... only bc it disgusts people and is a large turnoff to people you do business w/ especially if he did it on their own lawn

    its your call he is working for you if you don't like it which i guess you dont' by posting this question

    this is why man made kleenex and handkerchiefs to use when the nose is in need

    That would be like one of your mowing troops coughing up and spitting a nice hucker right off near their rear deck in their backyard. Truly professional.
