The foreman came over wanting to know why I was taking so much time to set-up, and I explained. He didn't want me to continue, so I just told him he could get anybody to do it wrong. He just walked away.
This was the building on 53rd & 5th, NYC, when Uniglo was taking out sections of floor to create an atrium appearance. There were 40 or 60 floors on top of the four we were working on.
Basically I was telling the foreman that I worked for the inspector.
We have a city inspector here that is a complete asshole, all he does is drive around town and if he see's a HVAC van he comes and inspects everything. Making sure it is all EPA Code. and NEC Code.
