Summer of 2006 A customer called to have the shrubs trimmed,edge the landscape beds & install 7 yards of mulch. They wanted this work started and completed a day before thier family reunion. Everything was loaded and ready to go the day before, the next morning my two guys was a no show. Both called in sick and I was pissed. So I started out that morning thinking I'm not going to get this done today. Stopped by a B.P. to get some coffee and noticed a homeless guy with a sign "Will work for food" on the corner. Thinking about putting this guy to work kind of worried me but I had to get this job done that day no matter what. I finally went over to the guy and asked him if he wanted to help me out today. He said yes. To my surprise he had some experience in landscaping which helped out alot. To make a long story short, This guy busted his butt all day long for me, we got the job done an hour quicker than I estimated. At the end of the day all he wanted was a Wendy's combo meal. I said screw that I took him out and bought him a steak dinner with the works. He was wore out and I knew he would be sleeping under a bridge some place, which I didn't want to see that happed after what he just did for me so I put in a hotel for that night. I told him to call me if he wanted to work. Haven't heard from him since but I never would've got that job done without his help.
