Do what the man said davinci. Sounds like you might want to go work for someone else until you get your chit together. Your not doing anybody any favors right now, other than the guys who are laughing about your situation. If you want a career in this business you need to get a grip and start over. Fire your "crew" tomorrow, tell the lady with the siding job the truth that your not qualified, and go apply at some established companies. Good Luck

Probably a mix tape from your crew of Death and Goth metal, with pics of their escapades in the Mystery Machine.

Oh, wait. Was that not you?
