    Teaching myself to not get irritated when doing service on other cabinet installer's jobs - like my wife says, you're getting paid good money to fix other people's fuck-ups. It is difficult not to be annoyed and especially so when you know it is good installers taking short cuts or just being lazy - I guess part of the problem is myself in that I don't take short cuts, I pre-drill every screw hole with a countersink including screws that don't ever require countersinking. It's a habit I've formed that does slow my work but at the same time, when it gets slow I still have work and other installers do not.

    Today, I did service in two sites that two different installers had done work in, both whom I would consider great installers and yet it was obvious that the stuff I was fixing was due to complete laziness - I didn't get angry today, I just shook my head multiple times and did the work required to make right what was wrong or just hadn't been completed in the first place when the office was under the impression the work was already done. The office wasn't upset because I document everything with pictures to cover my ass although I think the office was a bit frustrated that what should've been a 3-4 hour service job turned into 6 hours and there's still more work to be done.

    I ain't no EIT, and I ain't no Napoleon Prestige owner either. I take offense to both insinuations.

    ES was an EIT, just as bad as being an EIT.

    Did you mean to post this in the other Pet Peeve thread? Because that would make more sense. We forgive and forget in this thread. The other thread - not so much.
