halljams Posted May 24, 2004 Share Posted May 24, 2004 To get a strawberry shake after my bike ride today. Of course i get to the window and being the malnourished shinny little punk that i am, decide i need a teen burger as well. I have my dogs in the truck with me and when the guy hands me my burger he says "i put a couple strips of bacon in there for the dogs too"! Now it's no secret i have the best lookin dogs around but come on, what's up here? The guy was just genuinely being a nice guy, happy to just be friendly and make me feel good. You can't fake that shit. Boy that was nice. Yesterday i hired a kid around 21 to help me out this week as my main partner is sick. His dad called me and asked if i had any work and i said sure send him down. This lazy fat little pepsi drinking crack head was the most useless, didn't wanna be there.......... within 2 hours he asked me when i was gonna pay him and when i told him the end of the week he said he couldn't work tommorrow as he had something going on. This, after he agreed to help "whenever i need him this week" What it comes down to is TOO MUCH FUCKIN TV! Too much of everybody expecting LOTS for nothing. We are teaching this to kids now. There is a guy up here who runs a very successful ground moving and paving co. He is a good guy who always does a good job. He never has a shortage of work. If he bids 10 grand on a job and it is easier than he thought he will only charge 7 grand. No problem. He'll never be out of work. How well do you think that guy sleeps at night. How much respect do you think that guy gets. I was working at a job the other day and a couple guys were talking about this guy as they watched him working. I can't imagine a nicer feeling than having strangers talk about me like that. Check out SUPERVIBE Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
