    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 !

    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.

    It happens a lot. I watch who I hire here to work on anything expensive on my homes.
