    You are sooooo not alone on this one, Bro! Craftsman need to take pride in their job, not take your check for half ass work. This statement is not intended or meant for every craftsman, just the ones that waste my time and money.

    then after i give it a look over and say its wrong,then gm gets involved say lets go take a look.then acts like i'm asking for his daughter cuz it ain't perfect,dude i don't expect perfect but an inch differnce on the ends of the brackets vs the ones you didn't touch????just fess up its a $h1t job and make it right,don't try and defend it.even after they make it right they'll get negative responses when people ask me about them,its like oh your fi hose came off??? i'll just glue it back on,naw don't need no hose clamp on it

    That's frustrating. I'm sorry. I deal with people like that all the time at work, and I'm just counting down the days until I can just throw everything in their face.

    I know the feeling man, getting good help is like pulling teeth! A managers job is impossible anymore because you have to watch EVERYTHING THAT EVERYONE DOES while also trying to get your work done and coddle customers with constant phone calls and updates. The older guys just don't care anymore because they can't make the money they used to and the younger guys don't have ANY work ethic. I go thru porters and clean up people like people change socks. I run a body shop, I can wash and clean most cars for delivery in 15 minutes myself, 30 minutes on a real bad one. These young guys take 1-2 hours or more with constant hounding by yours truly and when they get done the car looks like shit.
