Default Being groomed by a pro

Hello all, great forum. Excited to be here. I'm currently working for a landscaping business and being groomed to become the foreman and eventually the boss. I feel lucky to be given a chance at this great opportunity.

We've been in business for over 30 years, I've been working off and on for about 5 years, started full time last May. This is my first spring working full time and I'm learning a bunch. Absolutely love it.

Made my first BIG mistake yesterday, spreading a crabgrass control when I thought it was fertilizer. We'll see if any of the seed actually germinates.

Anyway, like I said, I'm excited to be here and contribute to this already great forum.

My ex used to groom me. I could never get those hairs that grew on my shoulders. She was great!

How come you haven't started your own company yet? Still trying to learn the biz?

These things happen, but I am glad you pointed it out as you gotta watch out for things like this.
