yesterday a young man walked up on the job and asked if i was hiring,and always looking for good help i took 20-25 mins to talk with him,and he seems to be ok.young and thinks he knows more than he really does but he is respectful and honest(i will get to that in a minute).so when i ask what has he done he told me 2 years framing 6 months trim.i asked do you have tools and transportion "yes sir brand new ford f-350 4x4 and almost every dewalt tool that is made"was his answer.i then looked this kid over real good and asked how old are you?he's reply "21 sir."oh god how i hate being called sir.at that point he saw we use all ridgid and porter cable tools and says"sir why dont you use dewalt tools they are the best money can buy aren't they?".i told him i didnt care for spending $130 on a black and decker saw for starters" any way i called his refs the frist guy told me his mom is a local judge and his dad is a high dollar lawer in washington dc,and he enjoys working with his hands(nothing wrong with that)but mom and dad buys him every thing(lots wrong with that)but because he uses dewalt tools the kid thinks thay are all that and a bag of chips too(been there done that).the second guy told me the same thing about mom and dad but got mad at him because all his tools and truck and house are nicer that his own(good reason to fire some one oh well there are people like that on this earth).when i talked to the kid this eveing i asked what kind of money was he looking for he tood me"i was hoping for $12 an hour but my saw just burned up so i guess $10 an hour would be fine sir"i crack a joke about he's brand new dewalt saw and told him to meet at the job monday at 7 am and i will pay him $14.50 an hour just keep your black and deckers at home i supply all power tools i will keep you guys posted as the days go on
