I think you mean "immoral" ?

Though it would be cool to be immortal.

I wonder with Dayexco, if he saw these men as immortals, for having hookers, and the judgement that would be sure to follow

Re: I Fired 2 Workers Today


I also wondered how he got the employees to go back and apologize after firing them.
But, what were they going to say if their wives asked, " What do you mean you got fired for f'ing off ? ".

May have been some begging going on from the poor bastids! LOL! I can imagine them jumping through a few hoops to make things right with the boss.

That's just disgusting. What are you supposed to do with the seats in the van now. Throw them out? That van is now a petrie dish.

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.
Please clarify as to why you fired this twosome. Was it because:
-They hired hookers on company time?
-They got caught?
-The hookers were the customer's daughters?
-They were using your van?
-They didn't wait for you and make it a fivesome?
-They failed to clean up the job site when done?

Wait til they claim they were hurt intercourse - I mean in the course of their jobs & go after WC benefits.


I wonder if the IRS would view the "entertainers" as subs or employees? I'd 1099 them just in case.
