My first REAL job was at a place called 'Robeys Roast Beef' it was a hole in the wall joint that has changed owners many times over. I hated that place with a passion and promptly quit when I got another job with my aunt at the Ramada Inn. After she left... Wow, that place got bad.
I mowed too, I didn't mention it because it ended terribly.
My friend started his mowing company.
His Dad was a broker for AG Edwards and used me to teach his son (my friend) how to talk down to employees and never be satisfied with the their work.
I walked off the job one day after his Dad started hitting him.
Two weeks later his Dad threw a pair of hedge clippers at him and my friend spent several days in the hospital.
To this day he can't make a complete fist as the clippers severed the tendons in his hand.
Turns out the guy was all around a horrible person and aside form bringing home herpes was caught multiple times cheating but his wife never said anything.
One day he woke up, got served, and lost everything in the divorce. his Ex had been saving the credit card receipts from his affairs.
