If your helper came to work with no money, would you lend him a half or your meal or money for the coffee truck?

I did once and the dude burned me when he quit :furious::furious:

I agree with bill, if you are a big boy and cant remember that there is a thing called lunch, then i dont need your help, dont want your help, AND NO, you cannot bum a cig. That is if I stop for lunch, and FYI helper, be glad i let you ride in the passenger seat of the truck and not in the back.

I'd lend/feed him.
I would get more miles out of a guy who's not hungry.He may also have a tendancy to be more loyal out of appreciation.
I would ween him after he had time to get on his feet financialy.

Your a better man than me then. I dont have the patience for it. guess it has happened to me more than others. Its just hard when you know all the moneys they make go to other things. "Sure, I'll loan you five bucks to eat since you spent all your money on booze and MJ last weekend." Thats been the experience at least with me.

For the few weeks that I had a helper, I was buying him lunch all the time. I also hated it when we were driving down the road, I'd turn the radio up and he would turn it back down to talk to me without even asking!:furious: I really didn't want to listen to him blathering about his personal problems, I just wanted to listen to some music while I drive, which is why I would turn the music up in the first place!:furious:
Also he would ARGUE with me about which directions to take to a house, or how to do a job.:blink::no: He had serious problems with authority...man I am glad I work alone now.
That is what I get for hiring a friend used to work with at a former shop. Next time I am hiring a complete stranger and making sure he knows who the boss is immediately.
