i seen my 1st new guy the other day, he was stealing my tarp idea for leaves, it didn't bother me much but i felt bad for him cause was was kinda small and loaded way to many on it, (by the way i was across the street) so i asked him if he needed help, and i helped him load it on his truck. nice kid, but he just isn't gunna make, he had to be doing a $350 spring clean-up and was probaly going to charge $100 and be real happy. i was wondering how he fit his 21" push mower in his bed with leaves hanging out on all 3 sides. oh well also i talked to another new guy,he's from my city and goes to my high school and was looking for some advice on how to set afew basics up. i gave him some information and warned him about low-balling and to make sure he does evry job right if he wants to stay in business. sad thing is that both of these kids are not going to make it the whole year i can see it already, they just don't have the mind set for what we do. do any of you guys incourgae new guys of young age because you don't think they will make it then be able to take their yards from them when they call it quits?????? sorry this post is so long and makes nosense at times, its just been a long day.
