No-Go!

A large portion

Of my working life

Has been spent

Waiting

For inspections

Foundation

Slab

Tiebeam

Plumbing

Electric

HVAC

Framing

Insulation

Rough-ins

Finals

Etc

Etc

Etc

It’s past 4:00pm on a Friday

No inspection result posted yet

Where are you mister building inspector?

The concrete is scheduled

For a 7:00am Monday pour

Everyone is waiting

The concrete has to be batched

Much earlier than 7:00am

The pump has to be setup on site

The finishers need to know

Did the inspection pass

Was it a yes or was it a no

Is the pour a go

Dear Mr Inspector

If you don’t arrive pretty soon

It will be up to me to call it

The clock is ticking

Everyone is anxiously waiting

Okay, now it’s too late

We can’t take the risk

I have to assume you got tied up

And are a no-show

Which means

I alert the team

That the pour is a

NO-GO!
