Lost Another Lawn Man

Here we go again. On Sept 29 the yard man worker busted my transformer that I use on the outside lights to the back yard. I use them for decoration and security. We really did not know it was busted until Friday. Wednesday night the lights went off for several time for about 20 min each time. Thursday morning I had to reset the times to the correct time. Friday the same thing reset the time to the correct time. Friday morning early before I went to work. Remind you have have to be at the Hospital at 06:30 .. I wrote him an email telling him about the damage box. Well I heard nothing from him. Monday I bought the new box. Tuesday I had to put it in. I saw him later that day and told him what I did, all he said was, "I have several at home". Wednesday came back around, did he bring a new box for me, nope.. He came around 20:00 or 8PM almost dark. I had to turn on my lights around the house so they could mow. When I gave him the keys to the back yard . I told him the receipt was in the other envelope and so was his money. Thursday at 06:15 he calls me with a bulling and trying to intimidate me message how he was upset with me for taking the money out of the cost of the transformer. He he basically quit on me. Why do people not honor what they do and take pride in their jobs??? If you brake something of someone- else's replace it. So I am looking for another yard person.







I do hope everyone has a GREAT and Wonderful weekend. Take time and smell the roses.

Hugs
Ray

The guy riding the craftsman is one of my all time favorites.

Time to cruise Craige's List.

Tim said...

I can recommend #3, and he's a pretty good gardener as well! ;P

Stan said...

Hire #5. He looks like he could do more than gardening.
Seriously though good help is hard to find these days.

Yipes! can't blame u! that upsetting. last year either my mom or her lawn guy split the freon line on her 25 years ac unit, no replacement part available due to age and she had to get a new compressor. I have a xeroscape yard here in the high desert only roundup a few weeds ever two weeks.

love the naked lawn water boy! love to plow his back 40!

When I need 'services' I check out the names on the trucks of frequent fliers in the neighborhood looking for old time INC's. Independents (fly-by-niters) SUCK.. and it's worth a few bucks more in the end to have some kind of recourse.

Got an interesting medical 'professional' story for you.. new LNA at Mom's nursing home refused to do Mom's denture care this past weekend.. "I dont DO mouths".. oh yeah? She doesnt have to do ANYTHING anymore because I got her ass fired.

Have a gr8 weekend. HUGZ

If I lived closer I would take over the job if I can do it naked.
Or get a goat.

Sorry about all the shit you have been dealing with.

Ralph said...

Sorry about your luck with lawn mower/gardeners who are careless, sloppy, and refuse to accept any responsibility for the damage they cause... That aside, I want yardman #3 please.

oh dear, these days, you just can't get the right help any more, can you (LOL) ... well, I'm sure you'll find a solution soon, Ray! In the meantime, make the most of your weekend! Hugs, Martin

I sympathize and empathize in equal measures, Ray. Had to in the past hire independent contractors to do 'whatever' and they are dubious to say the least. Ive learnt you can only go on other peoples recommendations and have contracts that state explicitly one must do this at 'this time' and on 'this day' or one dosent get paid, period. And Id rather HAVE a period that re-hire certain people again!
Trying to find a decent removals firm for my upcoming house move and fucking dreading it.

Koba said...

Ugh. Hope your weekend is better! I'd definitely hire that last dude in the wifebeater!

LORDPATRICK said...

Sorry about all your troubles! Any of these men would do a very good job, I'm sure! Hope your weekend is better!

SickoRicko said...

I hope your next lawn guy is better!

Westernstock said...

Hope you find a reliable guy!

If there is a payment made under the no-fauIt sections of the original policy then it does not reduce the point when the umbrella comes into effect..

It should not be used as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Out of 40 job seekers, over half had a strategy which consisted of posting their resume online and waiting for a response.
