    Had to do it.

    I hired a guy who was supposed to be experienced. I wasn't impressed.

    This was is 4th week.

    He worked 1 full day
    7 days missed
    4 days gone before noon

    and when I told him to do something over because it was half-assed, he said F@#% that. I said go home I don't need you anymore.

    No work ethic at all. He is 27 yrs old.

    WTF is with people?

    Wow, I'm glad those days of hiring guys like that are behind me.

    The time and aggravation of going through 6 guys like that before you find one good one just is NOT worth it. And I'm talking real money here.

    Hire kids out of trade school with a diploma and resume and all that crap. Then you have something that you can train. The end result is you get a good employee the first time around. And not 6 guys later.

    Well, he told me his Grandmother died, in week two, so I had to cut him some slack.
