    Porn star Yoakum types have always been out there in the trenches but Competing against the millennial generation isnt even a fair contest

    It's tough when these types ask for help.

    I'm not mean enough to tell them the truth..

    An employee of a local multi truck operation came in with a list of things he needed to pick up. He left the paper on our counter, and when I went to discard it, I saw it was written on the back of a company memo.

    Its said, in part:

    "Starting immediately: You are not to ask customers out on a date when at the job, nor are you to use their number on their work order to call them later. When they tell you "no" on the job, don't assume repeated calls later are welcome. This especially includes married customers. Inquiring about their children's dating status, or even just commenting on their looks is also expressly forbidden. Having sex with customers while on the job is now grounds for immediate dismissal. From this point on, no warnings will be given."

    I am only imagining how bad the situation must have gotten that a company memo with that level of detail had to be distributed.

    Wow! That’s insane, Jim.

    And then theres the flip side when the customers, or customer’s daughters, do it to your techs. (If their cell phone is on their business cards). Luckily we haven’t had to include this type of disclaimer on our client sign off sheets.....

    That's a real problem. You have sex with one customer, then they all want it .

    Agreed. My "memo" story took it from a crude, clueless cleaner to a darker level.

    Yes, that caught my attention too. That's why I posted the Seinfeld video.

    I know posting things like this brings out the humor and war stories, but the deeper issue is that in today's "climate", the sensitivity to this type of issue is super high, and all of us have to be extra careful in what we say and do.

    That happens too, but I know you have your men on a short leash in that regard. The collateral damage from anything like that is astronomical.

    Is that how you met Paula? :lol:

    I've had a several office managers make comments about locking me in.:headscratch: I just play dumb and ignore it and they have all quit or got fired right after.

    I've always said women are just as bad as men.

    Actually it was a dude who asked me to come next door to give him an estimate.

    Knocked on the door, told to cum in and there he was buttfvckin nekid with his Bawb in his hand and about 30 gay porn mags layed out on the floor wide open.
