Couple more days off for me. The builder won't let us start taping until the AC get hooked up, but they don't even have the power hooked up yet.
Sure I like the AC, but we're having the best mud drying weather of the season , I guess the builder know's better:furious:. Dumb arse.
The hangers can have the next job ready by the weekend and their starting another right after, but, the screw inspector can't get there till Monday afternoon. I wish I got paid to look at screws.
I'm seeing a log jam in my future.

No, he clearly stated ,No finishing till the Ac's hooked up.
You know as well as I do that to get it taped and let it sit is the best thing to do.
He'll get the AC going and expect it done in short order, the coats won't fully dry when running a coat every day.
I just find it funny how GC's think they know it all about all trades.
The arrive onsite and pick at things when it's clear to me they have no idea what their looking at.

OH!! OH!! Let me take a wild guess ?
This g/c drives a $45,000 truck ..has perfect hair and wears loafers
Knows how to push money around ,,but has never hands on built a home?

Your so right PA..The chit these guys pick at adds up to nothing
But the things they should really be worried about.. they no nothing about..

Last Monday I almost told a g/c to delete my number from his phone.. But I didn't...I just commenced to polishing his turd.
Sad thing is ...He will never know what it took for me to straighten out his cluster ****...I should get 1% of the sale on each speck he sells!:furious:

Down here in the USSA, government inspectors need to inspect the hanging for proper screw patterns and proper placement of 5/8" gypsum panels in new residential and commercial projects. :blink::yes:

The US would win if our countries were competing... in stupidity.
Theres a big uproar in congress because the Olympic team's uniforms came from China. Big freaking deal. I haven't seen an American made garment in years. There are 313,918,000 Americans wearing Chinese clothing and congress is woried about 550 uniforms that were DONATED by a sponser.:blink:

I can beat that one :whistling2: http://www.torontosun.com/2012/07/13/canadas-shrine-of-shame

Only difference in the stupidity, is your guys news, is constant politics 24/7, you tune into CNN or fox news or something, and you would think there is a continuous election on all the time. Up here, were too busy trying to keep warm in the winter and going to the beach in the summer, instead of listening to them all the time.

But that's our problem up here, they know we don't listen, so more and more stupid things keep happening:blink:
