found out one of my service plumbers had been stealing copper and brass from me, i was tipped of from another plumber, he had just repiped a house and loaded all the scrap into his personal truck and cashed it in,so i called him on this and he admitted it, i told him that the scrap from my jobs goes into a pile and we fund our christmas party and it helps to offset some hard costs we are all dealing with now and besides that that is covered in our employee handbook. and he say so, and i say thats stealing i ask him if he got permission from the customer to remove the scrap and he says no, and that started to piss me off, there was a time you could clean up remove the old parts and go on your way, today with the price of scrap its is our policy to obtain the ok from the customer before we grab and go, so i ask him how long have you been doing this and he say from day 1[i love an honest thief] so i told him to pack up his tool and get the he#l out of here. this leads me the title of my thread, i get a call from one of my competitors not believing this guy used me as a reference,and he says can you tell me anything about this person and im thinking he#L yea i can, but i cant so i said ask me the one question i can answer, would you hire him back and i politely say no. and hung up the phone and thought to my self what a sad state of affairs that is when you cant open up and warn other business owners that there is a disease out there you need to say away from. and that piece of crap will just get another job so i guess the joke is on me.[ only worked with me for two months and was a good plumber shame]
