Did you find a new sub?

We used him since our normal sub's father had just passed away and he was dealing with that. And no, we wouldn't have used him again anyway.

That among other things he did reflected on his personality. It wasn't one worth keeping around.

If it was your wife walking and some guy was checking her out and make comments about her butt and boobs what would your opinion of that person be?

Maybe it's how I was raised but that's not my style.

For the record yes I would...

If I have a sub for what ever reason and he stopped talking about work to stare at some chick and make off handed comments about her it shows a lack of respect on so many levels. This isn't a bar it's a job site act accordingly.

We do a lot of work at a few colleges here, if there is more then a glance it's more then frowned on. Cat calling is a punishable offense. I expect employees to be respectful, subs are no different.


Any where off the job site is far game, I could careless. If we are at a bar and you want to hoop and holler at a chick, I could give two chits less, just don't go asking me for help when her husband or boyfriend comes around.

I am a sub to the gc and he was another sub. If it was my job, I agree completely. But as another sub, I'm surprised at the amount of disrespect.

It's just funny being the only female on-site. The white guys are usually like, "Woah, that's cool" and the Mexicans are all like, "WTF is going on???!!"

It does confuse the mexicans. Lol. Do they look at you like they are thinking "everybody freeze!... just stand real still and don't lose eye contact with it!"

Once they are used to the visual sight of you, they loosen up and gain free range of motion again but still never take their eyes off you.

Americans look at us like they want to taste us... mexicans look at us like we are going to stab one of them. We are trickery...someone is trying to trick them into something and they aren't going to fall for it.

Unfortunately some people are that way. I bet he's one of those cowards that beats his wife behind closed doors, and doesn't eat bacon...
