I have a lot of problems with my general labor. I've got a kid now with a good work ethic but he can not figure out anything on his own nor does he have a shread of common sense. If I keep him busy with mindless tasks, he does fine but anything that requires any problem solving, he's lost. I tried to teach him how to balance tires the other day and he could not do the simple math required when using multiple weights. The task was: What is half of 1.5 oz? He's a nice kid but, as John Wayne would say: "Life is hard. It's even harder when you are stupid."
