    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?

    You had no reason to fire him! What is up with that? I sure hope he takes you to the labor board! I swear! You had no right!

    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.
