    When I was younger and single, it was a great conversation starter/party trick.
    Do you use a lot of hair gel or hair spray? I would have no idea, I have not had hair on my head in 25+ years, I forgot what it was like.

    It would be interesting to see how he is doing. I still fail to understand why he took almost 7 years here before he started to try to pull a scam when he has been scamming people on internet forums for a dozen years. We all know he never delivers and he was on here trying to sell machines and solicit work.

    You'll have to apply it in the bathroom.

    Oh crap, I wasn't going to bring that up again!

    One of my high school friends had a mohawk like teach me's, he used jello to spike it up.

    I think somebody who hired Teach found a great employee.
    The question is how to do this and would a first crazy appearance influence your call.
    How do you find people like this? Ads, friends of friend, cousin of a good worker, sign on the street corner?

    On the bright side, I just had a really good interview.
    Have another lined up in a few hours. That guy has his work cut out for him.

    They're out there! We got a pretty good one last week. He's made a few dumb mistakes, but I can chalk that up to nervousness, or anxiety. He obviously knows his stuff.

    Best of luck!

    For me, it is a yes and no answer. I personally don't like tattoos or piercings.
    That is not a hard stop though. Some tattoos are actually done in good taste and/or for good reason.
    Allison actually has one that if you study it while she tells the story of what it means, you'll be like: "well, that's really cool".
    But, its not on her face! LOL (it is actually on her ankle). She also has pierced ears. But, her nose has no extra holes.

    Face tottoos, or piles of piercings? Yea, NO. Sorry, no offense.
    Even though Post Malone seems like a cool dude, and does a killer Nirvana cover. I would not hire him.

    Teach's mohawk? I would have to see how the conversation goes.
    If they showed up for an interview with it? And, they conduct themselves like he does here? "I think I like your attitude my man".

    Same here, all the way from 1959 to the present.

    I think you have to give someone a week to settle in unless it is blatantly obvious the guy sucks. I am pretty extroverted, have plenty of confidence, I would tear into crap that everyone else was afraid to touch. I think the only time I was nervous was as a kid with an abusive father with a hair trigger temper. In spite of all that and having worked in 8 machine shops and having over 20 jobs until becoming self-employed, the first couple days on a job I was leery. First thing to be leery about was whether I made a mistake leaving the last place, the second thing was trying to figure out who the back stabbers were.

    Purty sure that you said that you had a cpl interviews lined up a while ago and no mention since.
    I guess if there was some - they went poorly ....

    I was wondering that just now myself...

    Did you (Teach) have that thing on when you got hired in there?

    I will say that I am totally on board with Mr. Kings sentiments, but I consider coloured hair or whatnot to be MUCH less an issue (bad decission) as it is not a lifelong commitment.
    It is just today's status is all.
    Teach can shave the whole thing off and in a cpl months he's got a flat top and appears to actually be a stand-up member of society.
    (I don't know about his other schtuff)

    Actually - I was wondering if he still was sporting that thing yet, but by the sounds of things - "yep".

    I had three no-shows. And, one that sounded super interested. But, always had a reason he couldn't at least show up for an interview.
    Which ultimately turned in to his GF asking if she could have the job. Weird!
