So I just wanted to give a few tips for those that request ride-alongs as I had one the other day that showed up and I wish that he had gotten some advice or had the common courtesy to at least be presentable.
Dont show up in a POS vehicle
Dont show up wearing clothes that look like they were slept in
Dont show up like you just left the bar 4 hrs ago
Dont show up without the proper writing utensils needed to take notes
Dont show up with an “I know everything attitude”
Dont answer questions or give advice from the clients or agents regarding the inspection
Your being there during the inspection is a liability to begin with and the host inspectors reputation can be diminished.
I welcome ride-alongs and will now make sure that I am very clear about the expectations of the persons allowed to go with.
Anyone else can pipe in on good advice for the inspectors that want to go on ride-alongs.
