This Lloyd Hamilton short is a decently amusing piece, but it doesn't really scale the heights to being memorable. Lloyd Hamilton did have a good comedy character whom he played very well and often subtly, but that advantage doesn't come into play as much as it might here. The comedy is primarily gag-based rather than being rooted in character or situation. The story is the "Ham" has been hired at an employment agency as a driver/butler, and the gags proceed from there.

They in sequence to a greater or lesser degree, with probably the best business involving a sandwich in the agency at the beginning, and misunderstandings involving a crab's misattributed pinching of a maid later. For a gag comedy it doesn't have the precision and inspiration of a Buster Keaton short or the over-the-top extravagance of Larry Semon, and as Lloyd Hamilton it doesn't use his character to its fullest potential, but that said the gags generally do work, making it amusing enough to be worth the time.
