    that reminds of a guy that I hired on part time last year. He was just fired from his job and he wanted some extra cash for his pockets. I decided to stick him into doing landscaping maintenance. After the first day he told me he was done. I just thought he meant he was done for the day. But what really floored me was he said, "I just don't want to work anymore.....ever." Totally blew me away!

    A friend of mine who is an LCO as well hired this guy a few summers ago. Kinda big guy, anyhoo, he makes one pass up an incline on a residential yard walking behind a 48" Bobcat, comes back down and tells Tim -" This is harder than I thought.I'm done.." Then he wants Tim to drive him back to the shop(10 mins. away each direction) to go home.Tim tells him he cannot leave the crew to run him back, and he should call a cab or something.A week later he has the cajones to call Tim and want paid for 1 hour! It never ceases to amaze me with some people.I always get the guy applying who "needs 3-400.00 up front to fix his car so I can get to work" or " I need an advance and I 'll work extra hours for free if you can pay me for the first week now" ...Get a life,geesh...

    I had a guy make it to lunch, we all sit down to eat and he cracks open a Bud to wash it down with. Not bad for the 1st day 4 hrs.

    "My fish died, I can't make it in."
    (No kidding... I got that one last year!)

    "Is this kind of work ALWAYS this hard?"
    "I'm all done. Pine pitch gets your hands too icky."

    "I'm too drunk to come in"
    (At least he's honest)

    "Yo boss, I met this really FINE ho last nite, and we ended up at her place, and if saw what i was looking at right now..."
