I have no problem being a rat for something that I know is unsafe and could endanger someone's life. Plus it's a little sweet revenge.

I'm with you on this one. If someone does things the right way without a permit its not a big deal to me.

But if some schmuck does it way wrong especially feeling the need to cheat the safety of a structure and not get a permit. and someone buys the house and doesn't know any better. (Home inspector misses it or can't get to it ) and I see this kind of crap all the time. And then if someone isn't hurt then the best case scenario is someone is stuck with a big financial cost to correct the issue.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Just saw this tile job at a Mexican resteraunt bathroom.
I don't do tile but I bet I could get it a little more uniform than this.

While I was outside on my bench, enjoying my morning coffee I was watching these guys working. They are doing some work on a house across the street. Excavator hit the telephone line...... WITH HIS BUCKET.
