I fired 2 workers today
 
doing a job in a not so great area.. 2 of my guys i left at the job site are approached by 2 hookers.do they tell them to get lost ? of course not. they both utilize their services in my work van.
owner of the home comes home ( elderly couple) and notices my workers in the van " squirming around" .. the old couple thinks they are sick or injured and open the van door and they see everything.. i get a very irate call from couples daughter..i go there and they claim the hookers tricked them and quoted a lower price but demanded more. what the heck does that have to do with anything.. i fired them.
i have strict rules and all my goes know them.
no drinkin
no druggin
no cursin
no hookin
drugs, booze, and broads are a bad combo at the worksite and i make that very clear.. we have metting once every 6 months about the dangers of such bahavior. these guys knew better.

You have to have meetings to tell your employees not to get stoned and bang hookers on the clock?? :blink:


Explaining to their wives why they got fired is gonna be tricky. (Pun intended).

mnjconstruction 05-25-2012 12:20 PM

Lol, really? I am so glad i dont have my crew anymore and im working solo. Not only is the work alot better but i don't have to have weekly "hooker talk meetings" LOl

At least it was hetero...wait a minute op didn't say.

I can only imagine the look on the old couples face.

Wonder if they got to feeling a little randy.

Hahaha, reminds me of a commercial that used to be on tv where the old guy sitting on the porch tells his wife, "Remember when we almost........"

The old lady reacts sort of coy like.
