    Toward the end of every year when I have enough in my account I tell the guys no over time this week because I'm giving bonuses- At the end of the 40 hr week they would range from $280 to $360 on their pay check- We'll this week I gave 2 guys a check for $1000 and 1 a check for $700(since he's only been on for a year) Everyone was happy but A guy who's been with me for 3 years. He wanted he paycheck for $360 plus the $1000 bonus. Needless to say we got into it- and a long story short- He's gone

    Was upset today- You try to do something nice and still doesn't matter
    Good thing hes gone at end of season- have winter to find replacement

    Actually he gets 11.50 per hr.- plus I pay 3 guys including him, full unemployment Jan.- and Feb
    He was a great worker- but like X-mow says- he thinks he's the owner
    I used to bend over backwards for him- But I finally had enough of his crap
