And everyone thinks the Illegals are a problem in this business?

Each one of those ads should add your signature to the bottom of their ads!

I know oldfrt! If its one thing that gets under my skin its someone who thinks construction is super easy and anyone can do it no problem. " I would do it myself but I just don't have the time, I worked for a carpenter for 2 days in high school"
RC, ya I like those Professional masker wanted
In the second one this is the key line how you know they are big cheapskates looking for a crackhead or something "Must have a truck and be able to pick up shower door. Lunch will be provided."

I know. Why don't they just come out and say: "Liquid/Smokable lunch will be provided".
