The helper hat

Ok boys, you've heard of it. You've asked about it. Now here it is. It fits any helper that says they aren't paid enough, work to hard, or just bitches cause they aren't cool as us pros. I will let the hat say the rest.

Just gotta say this. I wouldn't want helpers to feel unwelcome around here. There are good ones and bad ones, just like everything else.

John, its cool. Today, I had to wear the hat! Helper off today. It felt great, and, everyone knew what I do

I know their are good helpers. My 17 year old brother is an awesome helper. Can cut better than me sometimes. Still gotta wear the hat sometimes

Doesn't one of your local malls have a kiosk that does custom computer-controlled embroidery? They could zip one out in no time.

I've worn the hat and still wear it, along with another one that should read "customer b_ _ _h"

My motto is: I won't ask anyone to do anything that I won't do, or haven't done myself. (not counting the brief stint as a secretary in D.C. and the cigar episode)

I definitely don't pay my helper enough!

I don't know if I can afford to give me a raise though.

Actually I add in a charge for fuel on every job already. It's part of the original estimate though.
