I sure as **** ain't going to do the work and leave them a note saying the place may blow up.
Oh, I understand perfectly. I've walked plenty of times. Not on a job check though. Not when I've been asked to look at something and it is unsafe.I'm not responsible for anything I don't touch. If they don't grant me authorization to make everything I touch safe then I don't take the job. A good experienced contractor knows when to walk.
What about that don't you understand?
