I don't know if it's a lack of personality so much as a lack of confidence and a lack of self respect. Or maybe just not feeling like they deserve to be treated any better... It's probably different depending on who it is. Whatever it is, I agree with you it's sad.

See what I'm saying Winds? Not so much insulting his girlfriend as stating my observation...

I'll give you an example of my sonofabithcness ...

about 5yrs ago I was called down to a grocery store remodel the company was working on in MD. It was backwards and sideways and upside down the day I showed up and I was told it had to be completed in 4 weeks. Every single department in the store was half gutted ... not even completely gutted ... half!

So I was tasked with completing demo, installing all new departments (some were relocating elsewhere in the store!) and remodeling, flooring, painting, new registers, millwork, aisles, freezer/cooler cases, all new signage, etc .... in 4 weeks ... with the same ratards that had already been there 4 weeks!!!

yes, call it Mission Impossible ..... but I did it ... and all that was left were some cosmetics and a Final Heath Inspection. Here's the rub ... the Health Inspector at the time had a lead time of 6 weeks ... so, fail the Inspection ... no store opening

On the morning of the Inspection, scheduled for 9am, I got to work at 6:30am. There is only 1 entracne to the store so I set up a chair and small table with a sign ... "Welcome Mr. Health inspector" ... and wait. My PM calls me at 7am ... "are you there?" ... "yes" ... "are you ready?" ..."yes" ..."you sure?" ... "yes, I'll call you when we pass"

This continues every fifteen minutes until I put a stop to it at 8:30 ... "look, I will call you when we pass!". The Inspector shows up at 8:45 ... in and out by 9:05 (of course the PM had called 3 times while I was walking with the Inspector) ... passed with flying colors (cue the Superman music)

So what does a good little worker bee like me do? I don't call the PM of course ... he calls me at 9:10 ...I ignore it ... calls again at 9:15 ... again, I ignore it ... calls at 9:20 ... once again, I ignore it ... 9:25 ... I answer it ...

"OMG Bill, I don't know what happened but the Inspector just left ... and he is furious!" ..."what happened?" ..."not sure, somehow he got into the store, I've been sitting here all morning ... haven't moved, and he went through the whole place" ..."and?" ... "i don't know, he won't talk to me, he said we failed, he is so mad ... told me to go fuck myself ... we failed the inspection!" ..."OMG, this is a fucking disaster" ..."I now" ... "what are we going to do?" ... "Bill, let me get off the phone, I'll go chase him down in the parking lot" ...

(cue the elevator music) as I sit and let the PM stew ... then one of the owners call ... "Darren, tell me this is a joke?" ..."of course it is Paudie ... I haven't failed an inspection in over 6yrs ... you think I'm going to start by failing a Health inspection!" ..."thank god" ..."how's Bill? ..."freaking out" ...

How the HELL did you attach so many pictures in one post?


Now back to my critique

Staircase - over 4' in width stairs require a fixed, rigid handrail on both sides. Velvet ropes does NOT count as "fixed" or "rigid"

Pic 5 - HVAC supply register in front of the fireplace ... let me guess ... some people like to be hot and cold at the same time?

Pic 8 - mirror is NOT ADA complaint

Pic 9&10 - that fireplace is non functional due to the frieze relief inside it

Pic 11 - the little guy on top of the chest with the banjo ... kicks azz!

Pic 12 - even low voltage wiring CANNOT be exposed and spliced like that

aside form that it is a pretty sweet looking place. I'd be willing to bet that almost all of the decorative wall and ceiling moulding is plaster ... very skilled work


thanks, love the old time workmanship
