Chit happens. Take a chill before you leap froggy is all I got.
Thanks... I'm currently evaluating where the boss thinks the company will go. He's currently segueaing in to a 3 way partnership with two other companies. There may be work available for months on end, but I want to see where their priorities are... Quantity or quality.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Sometimes it's not always about not caring sometimes the customer wants what the customer wants.

I've had customers ask me to put tvs in the dumbest of places or network jacks at completely odd heights .

It may feel wrong and I will advise them of better alternatives but if they want the tv in a stupid spot of the outlet out of line with the rest as long as they sign off oking it I'll do it.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Isn't that great work I did there? Doors match perfectly. Just a smidge over sized. Maybe take a hand plane to it.

I built them to the size I wrote down. To bad what I wrote was off by 4" WTF

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


A-yup. Sure does.

If I was off by 1/8" I'd be pissed. This, I actually laughed. It's so far off it's hilarious. The HO understood, she loves my work other than the slightly oversized doors

If you give me the post numbers of the posts I'll do it. But I'm not going to search the whole thread to make it happen. If Tin is bored he'll do it.
