Re: Is Anyone Else A Tattletale?


I've wanted to call hundreds of people in, but don't. If you want to do that, I have no problem. Do it. I think it's a good thing. Just made a decision that I wouldn't be one of those guys calling in other people. It's not my thing to worry about everyone else i the world, I need to focus on myself.

On the other hand, I've been called in with no permit. It's awesome.

playing by the rules sucks. it's total garbage and I sugguest that no on should bother playing by the rules or being legit, do everything you can not too, seriously. It will cut into your profit, increase your overhead, and bog you down with endless headaches.

Just this week I told my electrician and plumber to go get a permit for a job we are doing. In the past I wouldn't have needed a permit for my scope of work. WELL the plumber says they says I need to pull a permit WTF!

So now I have to sit on the job for two weeks while they process my permit, pay a bunch of money for nothing, waste 3 hrs of my life putting the permit together, getting inspections, and all the other headaches

so the lesson learned, I should have told the plumber and electrician no permits, do the work and hurry it up
