You may have signed the contract with a mature, licensed, careful person, but that person works in the office. The senior teens have the equipment and are much more concerned about which foot goes on which pedal and how cool they look than whether your tree gets flattened or a neighbors property is damaged. >> Sharon and List, Great point! So So So true. Many times throughout our construction process I looked around in wonder at the kids barely out of their teen years who were framing, plumbing, wiring and painting the houses. But the senior teens, the ones in their twenties and thirties were the biggest problems, and were arrogant and sloppy. The amount of litter left on site during construction was a sight to behold. My brother in law is a project manager for Sea World, and whenever he came to visit he would look around in disgust at the garbage left on site, cans, fast food containers, cups, and trash, as well as the construction debris. He would have never allowed that on a job he was managing. We used to tour the site with garden carts collecting recyclable containers and could fill up the cart in no time, at least once a week. Go figure. And the painters, in their low twenties, were in fact dangerous as they sped onto and away from the site in their cars. "Be careful, it might be a teenager" describes them to a T.
