This is his plan. He's a good kid, I had my doubts, he just needs a little guidance. He's a my best friends, daughters, babys dad and the daughter, very much like my kid sister, begged me to give him a job and an act of kindness was well rewarded I think.Warren said:Couple more paychecks and he can get a license and a car!!
Then he will be a man!
NO WAY! Let the boy.. ahem..er um.. MAN make his own way. He gets rewarded down the road when he earns enough money to buy his own house.A great boss would reimburse the lad and take it as a write off....lol
Yup! I had a young helper who I encouraged to stop spending his money on iPhone apps and start investing in something that can MAKE him money..like his own tools. And then a few weeks later he had gathered up a pretty good collection of stuff and told me that now he feels like he's "one of the guys" and that he's finally getting the respect that he wanted from me and the other crew members.A&E Exteriors said:Helper: I'm so glad I bought all this stuff, I feel like, I feel like ?
Me: you feel like a man don't you.
Helper: (lightbulb comes on) yeah, that's it!
You found a keeper for sure. My mate had sacked 40 people last year from his business. Also if he gets affects by fiberglass get him some barrier cream. You can roll about in yellow fiberglass and not itch at all. I use it every time I do demo or get into a loft it's one of the single best purchases I ever made. Most woodcraft type stores sell it.And he has proven to be a fighter, roof #3 was a 3 layer cold roof tearoff, 3 layer of shingles ( proper nailing, pattern and size each time), 1 torchdown, 1 layer 1x8, 2 layers 1/2" fiberglass insulation board. The closest he came to complaining was he said on the 2nd day, "man I'm itchy"... That's it, "man I'm itchy."
Edit- 52 sq
I rarely work with fiberglass and have never heard of this. I have a fiberglass insulating job coming up though, so researched the product. Thanks for the suggestion.Also if he gets affects by fiberglass get him some barrier cream. You can roll about in yellow fiberglass and not itch at all.
