    I always read that friends working with friends is a bad idea, it won't work etc etc etc. This my short story about friends working with friends. I'm the owner of Daddy Joe's Lawn Service been in bussiness for 4 years. Daddy Joe's Lawn Service wes founded by my best friend of 12 years. The last years i spent with my friend working side by side was the best day's of my life.We had our problems and we always got them sloved. He would alway's say walk way from it and come back later. We have a job to do let's do it and talk about it later. Well in 10/2005 i lost my best friend of 12 years due to cancer he was 36 i'm 34.1 week he was sick and 2 weeks leater i buried my best friend of 12 years. I know today when i got to work i know he us there smiling down at me!! Every 2 week's i go to his grave site and cut his grass and make him:) . So working with friends isn'nt so bad it worked for me and i hope it works for you spend your time and enjoy each other!! :angel:

    if working with friends didn't work then there wouldn't be a US Military. I understand what your saying about agruments me and my supervisor are buds and we also are probably the fastest when we are paired up for the day, maybe its the fact that we both know what each other is going to do.
