I have heard a few stories but this one is something completely new.

My question is, were all four in the van at the same time? What was really going on here?

I've had lots of talks with my crews through the years about appropriate behavior on the job, but NEVER have I thought we needed to have the hooker discussion.

Yeah, I guess it just shows your posts were too boring & were expendable as a result. If you'd have spiced them up with some real T&A, they'd probably have 10k responses by now.

We're laying odds you'll be updating your policies after reading this thread.

The mods talk about us in secret, and several have participated in this discussion, so it must be o.k. today.

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.
I see no Hookin but I don't see No Johnin....

Looks like you fired em for no cause...
