    Co-worker's shame

    Here are some pctures of one of my co-worker's installs. He calls himself "Starr-man". This is typical of one of his installs, and he still has a job.
    If it wasn't for the pay, I would have a new job.

    (one of my jobs is on the wall of pride)(it is typical of my jobs)

    Does your boss even visit the job site when it`s completed?

    I hope you get paid more than this clown.
    I love overtime I just hate working for it.

    Real special! You could turn this into a "find all the problems in this picture". I hope he doesn't hurt anybody.
    Anything I say here is only my opinion. Even if you understood what I said.... What I said may not even be what I meant.

    Hard to believe what some people will do. I wonder if he sleeps good at night knowing what he did that day!!

    he said he doesn't care what kind of work he does, as long as he gets paid on Friday.

    I would fire him on the spot!

    I would think H/O would have thanked him for the temp heat for the night and what time will you be here tomorrow to redo everything
    I've seen DIY look better than that!

    yeah, we get call backs, that is where i got these pictures, he didnt turn on the gas cock. i have tried to get him fired, but i think there is something behind the scenes with him and the boss. i have more pictures of his work, and they are all the same. this guy couldnt even pass the NATE exam. he got a 44%. doesn't even have EPA certification.
