Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


There are no sheeting inspections here. The first building out here was only nailed at the seams

I don't know, but I gave up bitching about it years ago. If the sheets fly off, it's not my problem is my attitude now.

They would still try to find a way to blame you though. "He didn't nail his singles to the rafters with 2" nails! What a hack!"

Have they gone inside and gave her a new bathroom and kitchen yet? They may still have some gun nails and beer left.

Electricians will appreciate this proper use of the "outdoor cord".

Yes, that is an orange electrical cord helping tie things down.

No signage or identifier on truck.

MI doesn't have sheething inspections because we only have the occasional tornadoes. Pretty low, though, on that job.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Its amazing how brutal people are with the trucks . I saw a pick up with a collapsed chassis the other day from overloading. It had a massive bed tilt to the center of the truck.

I dont a dent in mine.

Pfffft! That's CO, so it's illegals and no one cares. They even put on fake numbers on the doors of their trucks, DOT stops them gives them a ticket and everyone pretends like they'll show up for court.

Trucks loaded that way with residential stuff are "midnight mexican movers"....getting out before the eviction date hits. Road hazards are when they fall out. Driving down i25 once I saw a cardboard box, so went on alert. Sure enough, a little while further saw a big screen TV blown up over a few lanes. Then a little while more saw the pick up truck parked in the middle, by the median, a few in the back with a shocked/dumbfounded look on their face.
