A number of houses are going up behind ours and they are being built by a local “contractor”. Many people question his building tactics and the quality of his homes. DW was in the backyard and heard the following conversation.
Hired Help – hey “contractor”
Hired Help – “contractor” !
Contractor – what !
Hired Help – what did you say that measurement was again? 12 inches?
Contractor – yea
Hired Help – well its only 11 inches.
Hired Help – well what do you want me to do about it?
Contractor – uh . . . nothing . . . that’s close enough.
This one inch discrepancy will now probably show up all though the building process with each successive sub-contractor having to deal with it when it could have been corrected right at the beginning.
Personally I would not be able to let that one inch go.
