I love all of my followers and appreciate all of your comments. I try to read you all each day. However, at work, we have dinosaur computers that don't like when I open some of your blogs. Some make my 'puter crash. When I get home at night, I try to get caught up with as many of you as I can. Please understand sometimes that is nearly impossible, since all of you rock!
For my new followers I just don't want anyone to think I am the type of person to post and post and never comment. For my faithfuls, I appreciate your understanding and just know I try!
True story.. My husband is working for a company that is doing work for a major restaurant chain. Not saying which one. Anyway, he is working in Miami, you know where Hurricane Andrew hit in '91 and nearly wiped it off the map? Inspectors took a lot of the blame for not doing their job properly.
So this major restaurant chain hardly ever pulls any permits. They'd rather "save money" So, they hire all these men to do the work PLUS Time and a half overtime, pay all the money for material and then the men put their time away from their families, blood, sweat, tears, and curse words into the work. Good plan right? Otherwise how is it supposed to get done. But... do you know what happens when you don't pull permits? More often then not, you get a pissed off inspector who finds out permits were NOT pulled, that makes those same men pull allllllllllllllll the shit down they worked so hard to put up, the company pays the penalty, pays the money for the permit, then has to spend MORE money (remember the plan above to save money?) for the material and man hours PLUS time and a half overtime twice and do it like it should have done in the first place. Correctly. Because men run this company it takes twice as long to get the job done. Women would follow proper legal procedure and have it all done right the. first. time.
I understand how men think, with their penises and all. But conducting business hardly ever involves boobs, butts, beer, booze, Nascar or football (unless you own a bar, whorehouse Nascar and/or football team). So why doesn't common sense prevail here?
