I know from personal experience , that will leave you temporarily short handed and overloaded , Dean . Having to do damage control is a real problem , when your vehicle numbers are high , on or off - road types . With any luck you won't have taken that many hits ,that it will affect your reputation , or business . If some call you a little hard - nosed about it , so be it , you're the guy who has to pay the bills . You had mentioned about my growing up in a small town . I learned that pretty quick , that when your credibility is being challenged , it takes a lot of make up work sometimes , to sort out the bs. The guy who left didn't do you any favors , and it sucks when you have to clean up the messes he left behind . Good luck , Dean , hang in there . Is there any way you can get some assistance locally until this settles down ?
