.....Having to lay people off. It's just getting slow right now. Had to lay another guy off today - just a few weeks before Christmas. I hate having to do that. It was sad. I told him we'll be hiring him back in January or February, as soon as business picks back up. But he was bummed. This guy has a family and kids and works hard out in the rain every day for me every day. Did good work, was responsible, etc. I didn't have a choice. And I know he'll be able to get paid from the unemployment dept. But I just hate having to do it. It just sucks! Firing people isn't nearly as hard. When they deserve it, it's not that difficult. It's when they don't deserve it, but you have to let them go anyway, that it hurts.
