    2 questions really.

    1. When you say you or your guys start at xx:xx AM and end at xx:xx PM, does that time refer to arriving/returning to the shop, or arriving/leaving the jobsite, or some combination?

    2. On an average day, do you vary the time you leave the shop, so that you can be at the jobsite at a consistent time, or do you get to/leave the shop at the same time, and you get there when you get there?

    Everyone leaves the shop by 7am. That means I expect you there by 6:45-6:50.Only times we will leave earlier is if we are traveling. We Always shoot for being back by 5-6pm.

    Sorry, poor attempt at humor. Tom Coughlin the coach of the giants has meetings that start say at 10am. If you aren't 10 minutes early your late:confused:

    Ahh, definitely not a sports fan or else I would have caught it. I'm the same way, at least 10 minutes ahead of time. After all it is a "start time" not a show up time.
