I worked for Kirk when I was right out of high school. On my first day he fired a guy for being late. He expected you to be on time and ready for work. The next day I could not find the house we were roofing. It was one of those plans with lots dead end streets. I drove around frantically going up one dead end after another. Finally, I found the right street. I got out of my car certain he was going to fire me on the spot as well. He took one look at me and started laughing. He gestured around, "I heard you over, and over there, You've been driving all around this place. Get on the roof."
