    Had a guy build my pool room.Did a sloppy job and came to the job drunk at 9 AM in the morning 24 years ago. That will never happen again. It was a friend's friend.

    While I doubt that a little drink is going to hinder their ability to work, I don't know their tolerance either! If I'm paying them, I'd expect them to save the liquor for when they get home.

    I would be concerned if they were under the influence of anything. I want the best for my money.

    But if you're one of my buds and you're there to help me with a project, why not. Well, the beer anyway, I don't smoke weed anymore, I stopped when I turned 61. ;)

    Yes, I would care. If I'm paying them, I want them to be attentive to the job at hand. I don't want them buzzed up and doing sloppy work.

    .... aside from the quality + performance aspect, I don't want the liability.

    If I needed a drunk doing a poor job, I'd send a request to Congress for a retiree.

    I smelled on booze on one of the two guys that came to install my counter tops. I called the company right in front of these guys and they were told to go back to the shop. Two other guys showed up a few hours later and had to take back the tops the others brought. They were granite tops that were all chipped and dinged up. I hadn't noticed but the other guys did.

    Strangers in the house is one thing, but if they can't go a workday without alcohol they are junkies too and that's a little too much for me.

    Sounds like fun ;0 )

    Love to build a log cabin !

    Lived in one for a couple years...

    It was older than dirt, only wood heat ~

    Broke my heart when I had to move away :p

    Strengthened my resolve to do it again, someday !

    Well Cutter, I've been called a lot of things in my time but "cheesehead" ain't one of em, LOL.

    I ain't stirred cement with black flies eatin' me alive but I have survived the jungle being eaten' alive by every GD critter known to mankind and then some. I'm still not sure if them thar things buzzin' over my head were bees or bullets, kind sound the same though.

    I wasn't trying to stereotype anyone. It's just that this person always says "Hell, I am from Texas, we do what we want"

    No Problem there. I have seen to many contractors show up at Noon with the beer.
    And this one friend did show up in the morning 9 AM with a beer in his hand.I have lived in Texas all my life.

    So, would you say that this is a norm in Texas? If so no wonder he doesn't understand what I am having problems with.
