    Well, at least you are not 'offended', seems like many people these days get offended easily.

    Just got back my sawzall. Knocked on his door and his wife answered and had the tool in her hand. Said she was ashamed and asked me to not press charges. Don't know where he was. I thanked her and left. Sad story. He was making a grand a week off of me before taxes. Good riddance

    First time in I don't know how long I fired a guy with extreme prejudice. First he is an unskilled ground worker. But a fairly good brush mule, terrible at roping or chipping but sometimes you just need a mule. So I always figured to employ him for what he CAN do, not what I want groundi to do (which is to build them up in skills, more money etc etc). Like hitting a brick wall, guy just didn't get it. Guy called me saying he is really broke and do I have anything extra for him to do? I say sure come on over on Saturday I have 1/2 cord of split wood needing to be moved into the wood shed. 32' away (Yes I actually measured it lol) Told him 120$, easy money. Paid him cash when he arrived. I had to leave to bid jobs generate work. Get home that evening, job not done! WTF??? Now here is the awful funny part of this story He told me that it was very hot and he felt that the money wasn't enough for the job. In addition, he said I didn't offer him any water. I said the garden hose was 3 feet away. He said he doesn't drink from garden hoses because they are filthy and he wouldn't let his dog drink from a hose. I said, jeez, we just 12 months ago installed an entirely new well head, supply lines AND HAD OUR ENTIRE RANCH CERTIFIED ORGANIC! (We sell veggies to restaurants, farmers markets etc) $25,000$$! ....a sawzall disappeared from the shop that day. DeWalt, used the day before, setting on a work bench in plain sight. Try and help a guy... Jeez It's hard to not be a bitter ruthless employer. Fucker. I have never blacklisted a guy, never went to other companies and said watch out for this guy, but this really tempted me.

    All calls for me go to landline and cell. I pay for data, incoming and outgoing. Plus my own personal time in grabbing the phone to see who it is calling. Perhaps you do not mind this or have unlimited data plan ? Either way, it seems like you are saying spam calls are not a problem for you.

    Sad thing is, almost every homeowner consulted an 'expert'. Nursery, landscape designer, landscape contractor, etc. THEY are the problem, not the arborist! Sad because many of them have a degree.

    �� Promo? Where EXACTLY is my video promoting one device over the other? Greg Good had Zero to do with my video! Ken Johnson had Zero to do with my video! Both of them did not 'film' them with me. I made that video myself! (With the help of my friends) Ken just showed up and donated the Hobbs (very generously) , the grcs was my own. Jeez, let's not rewrite history! ��
