DH works in the oilfield as a supervisor for a frac crew ..... Some of the men that work for him just seem to defy common sense and maturity ~ what the heck is wrong with these people? In today's economy if you have or find a good job you KEEP it.... some of these GROWN men seen to be walking out the door before they ever even get trained.
DH just called..... heads are rolling this morning.
DH works insane amounts of hours, comes home with oil and grease and mud all over him, goes anywhere from 24 to 48 hours without sleep, works his a$$ off -- and the crap that he has to put up with from some of the guys is just STUPID IMMATURE CRAP!
He's headed to the office right now (after working 18 hours) to write up FOUR of the guys...... one guy is supposed to be on the day shift...... that's 3AM to 3PM...... the guy comes to location at 3AM, works till 3PM --- DOES NOT leave to go home.... stays on location ALL FREAKING DAY sleeping in the van.....wakes his butt up at 2AM and GOES HOME!
UH dipsh!t, you were supposed to be back to work at 3AM -- WHY would you sleep on location till 2AM then Go home?? How stupid can you get?? O well -- this guy is already on probation. This is considered a no call/no show and will cost him his job. (and the guy didn't tell ANYONE that he wasn't leaving location -- just assumed that if he slept in his truck that would count for "Working overtime".
I mean really girls.... that's like you or I working 9-5 in the office, going out to the parking lot, sleeping in our car all night, then NOT going back in to the office at 9 the next morning. DH said he called the guy at 6AM this morning and the guy told him... Well, I was on location for 24 hours - DH is sooo pissed.
I don't get it AT ALL....... if someone has a brother or BIL or friend who seems to have a sh!tty work ethic.... help me out here.... what the hell are these people thinking?

If your husband is in a mangement position, the first thing he needs to learn is that he will never change people.
He needs to change himself and his approach on handling his employees.
A good supervisor or boss has good employees, he doesn't look good to his superiors by complaining that his employees are childish or irresponsible. It's his job to make them better and productive employees.

one more resource for your DH
tony dungy is a master at getting men to do the right thing, at work, in life and on the field.
Highly recommend these books by him for you guys. It sounds like your DH has a good job, and he could really advance quickly by learning how to effectively manage the unmanageables. GL
