On my first week working for Stanley along time ago the guy I went out with did the same thing. He went by and sprayed a couple of rooms with the wand to make the carpet wet.Or what's the worst thing you have caught an employee doing? I caught one of my employees spray misting the wand in the air in clean rooms. When I confronted him he said the customer will not know as long as the room is wet.
I said yes but I know, your fired!
So what's the worst thing you have ever saw or heard a carpet cleaner doing???
Here is a video we did based on the first part of this thread. Be forewarned it is one crazy video. But so is this thread.[video=dailymotion;x6ses1]
I would probably throat punch a customer if they did that more then once....Its like saying " I think you are an idiot that cant see the spots on carpet so here is a a marker cuz your a dumbass"I have a customer that used to put pink sticky notes on her spots, I used to just prespray them and suck them up as I cleaned...until one unknowingly got stuck to the bottom of my shoe. I was cleaning, and saw a pink spot, and thought, oh I must have missed that on my walk through, I'll hit it in a sec with some red one. Then I saw another, and another, and again, I was like wtf is going on, where are these coming from? After I noticed about 10 spots, I realized they were in my footprints, I thought oh shit, and immediately started trying to get them out, I showed her just in case they didn't, and with an iron, and some red one, got them all out. Luckily, she is a good customer, and it didn't fase her too much. But, ever since then, I just write down issues/spots, and pick up/ vacuum the post its up prior to cleaning, smh.
Heavily medicated kids today are the ones shooting up schools bro....All these anti depressants with horrible side effects are being pushed on kids that have social issues as if doping them up is going to make them come out of their shell... its disgusting... 60 years ago kids didnt need drugs to keep them from wanting to jump off a roof, they just needed to kick the school bullies ass in front of everyone and get laid by the head cheerleader....This is on the parents for pussying their kids up instead of teaching them to be men...I don't know maybe it's just me but when you own your own biz you immediately become the favor factory and ATM to all of your friends and family. I have hired a host of nit wits chuckleheads and goofballs to the point I'd rather just work longer hours and more days to get it all done.
My most recent and last employee ever just killed it for any future employee's for me for the foreseeable future. I've known this kids parents for 40 years and just kinda figured him as a shy introvert who needed his first job. I used him on some construction cleanup without much issue. Then started him on ccing. First few times he did fine and dint say much. I always found it odd when a early 20 year old cant sling a wand due to no upper body strength, meh just move the hoses sonny.
On the morning of his last day I stopped for fuel drinks and snacks, told him to get what he wanted and thought it odd that he got half dozen red bulls. Found it even more odd he drank them all on the spot while I was fueling up I figured he was up all night video gaming or something,,,,,I was soooo wrong.
Get to our first job and while I was wanding my hose starts bunching up and I look behind me to see what he's doing and he's going thru the peoples bills and mail I told him to knock it off and move the hoses which he did. They bunched up again and I look up and he's "squatting" on the back of the couch and doing this crazy baby bird impression I tell him to knock it off again, take him out side and ask him whats up he said he's just clowning and I told him to get it together. We go back in and he's kinda looking off into space not paying much attention so I tell him to grab some of the runners from the hallways so I can do them once I'm done I tell him to feel how damp they are and hang them up,,,,he feels them with his gloves on looks me dead in the face and tells me "they're already F'n dry" in front of the custy. I tell him to go wait in the van.
Next job we go to he disappears again only to walk up to me with a pistol he "found" and proceeds to tell me its broken and he can "fix it" thank God the custy wasn't home. I tell put the f'n thing back tend the hoses and quit f'n around.
Next Job empty rental and he's gone "full retard" at one point he has the fireplace poker and a water meter tool I keep int he van for turning on house water and he's literally "sword fighting the pirates" at least that's what he told me. I cant do anything but choke him out or make him go wait outside I choose "B" and continue to clean.By the way I never saw the water key again have no idea what he did with it and before I left I checked all the walls ceilings and light fixtures for damage. Nothing I'm gold one more house to go.
Last job at this point I aint letting him get too close or stand behind me he's so far in outer space I'm not sure he can hear me talking to him. I tell him to wait by the van and don't touch anything. It's a 2 story house and as I'm getting done with the upstairs and getting to the first step he had come in and grabbed the hose and did this crazy "double dutch" swing with the hose and declared "I got the ceiling with it" he almost pulled me down the stairs and I had to physically "bump" his crazy ass out the door. At this point he's just running around the house on the cleaned carpet talking to nobody in particular about what slobs the tenants were thankfully I got it all done bundled his nutty ass up and dropped him off at home.
I'll NEVER hire another person as a favor to anybody. And mind you this was just ONE of a half dozen or so idiots I went through, each with their own little "quirk". Come to find out the kid was heavily medicated mom and dad just so happened to forget to mention that and under no circumstances was he to have any caffeine,,,,,,, let alone half a dozen red bulls.
Careful John, you might hurt somebody's feelings, lolHeavily medicated kids today are the ones shooting up schools bro....All these anti depressants with horrible side effects are being pushed on kids that have social issues as if doping them up is going to make them come out of their shell... its disgusting... 60 years ago kids didnt need drugs to keep them from wanting to jump off a roof, they just needed to kick the school bullies ass in front of everyone and get laid by the head cheerleader....This is on the parents for pussying their kids up instead of teaching them to be men...
