Lucky yaw. I was a bottom tier man. Handled every stick.
Your not a small business owner. Your a stay at home mom trapped in a pyramid scheme.

Yep. They put the big guys on the bottom. Always joked, "Hand her up here, hoss".

I was always the bottom or middle tier man. We'd hang all day and feel sick all night from the tobacco juice..hated hanging wet tobacco especially when it'd drip in your eyes..good money for a 13 yr old though

I think so. One of the young men I could have gotten seems nice and works hard but has had several run-ins over drug violations. There are a couple older guys who do work for low wages but they may show up and they may not. Other than that, you have to employ a contractor so it becomes more efficient to just burn it and get done.
