That's called a "prison pocket" and a trumpet isn't the weirdest thing I've heard of being stored there.

Well, since he is not patronizing prostitutes or fighting the homeowners children I guess your hiring practices have improved. You should see if he has any friends at the home who are looking for work. They could all sit around and look at hammers on their lunch breaks.

Seriously, if this a legit post, my guess is that he is on some psychoactive medication.

I generally avoid phycos in my business, if I accidentally hire one he will be released as quick. Working in and around occupied homes I want level headed tradesman with at least some social skills.

Re: Happy With New Worker But A Bit Worried-


The guy is drugged out of his frukin mind, if he even really exists. Normal, healthy, competent tradesmen don't behave this way.

You come up with the most frigged up stories here, and if there is even a grain of truth in any of them, I know I wouldn't have you or you crew anywhere near my jobsite. This is the kind of crap that perpetuates the prejudice that tradesmen are lowlifes, and only white collar people have manners and intelligence, when in fact, tradesmen contribute more to society than the vast majority of white collar workers. You are a disgrace to the trades.

"disgrace to the trades" Dang! Tell us how you really feel. You should lighten up on him a little, i mean all he does is hire guys that screw hookers, fight with customers and snort a little glue every now and then, i mean come on- who doesnt like to get high on rubber cement and get some action in the tool trailer.

I just wanted to thank you for the above portion of your post. Well put.

I'd say it's likely required maintenance for you at this point.

Re: Happy With New Worker But A Bit Worried-


I've dealt with it (druggies) before. If you can control them, you may get some work out of them for a while. However, eventually you will be looking for your screw guns and compressors. Handtools will start walking off and your gas card will be jacked for groceries.

You will eventually fire them and they will come back and try to kick your ass. Ask me how I know. Just hope you are 6'1 and 250 pounds. It makes it easier to not get your ass kicked. In my instance, it also helped that all my guys were around and we started laughing our asses off when they came back all tweaked out trying to pick a fight.

Unfortunately for you, your guys will most likely be having a circle jerk in the van eating popcorn off each others chests while you get your butt kicked.
