How do you let a guy work inside with no shirt on? Outside, whatever even if it's unprofessional but inside?

What I hate worse is when guys like that scratch between the rolls and stink up the entire room and gets his fat roll stench on everything he touches.

Re: Things I Hate


I hate when I can no longer get a big bag of 5min easy sand from USG. When I have a project that demands speed, I need vast amount of product! Not some small box.

When I want to anchor my 6" in my new pan, dammit, I don't want to wait around!

Get a box of 5 and mix it with a bag of 20. You'll still get the 5 minute result.

Not sure what's worse. The mental image that brought up or the memory of actually seeing that exact thing happen.

Combo garlic/ cottage cheese smell.

Re: Things I Hate


Licence renewal time. Nearly 2000 dollars out in fees, insurance, bonds, continuing education, etc., etc. Just as I was getting ahead.

I have decided as my costs are going up, I am going to start turning guys in for not being licenced. I'm not a dick, but I pay, so should they.

Oh, and waiting until the last minute to do all this.
