Takes me an hour to get there, geez! No sheet rock. Great! Call client and advise him of such. Why would my sales lady tell me the sheet rock is up when it isn’t, he asks? Don’t know, you’d have to ask her. Schedule the inspection for next day. Check email this morning and here is the cut and pasted message from the customer:

BULLSH*T. Needless to say, now I'm pissed. I'm going to do the inspection anyway. Customer can pay me for access to the report if he ever wants it. Until then, it'll be on my dime.
Here's a link that I sent to the client with along with my response http://stacks.msnbc.com/news/560700.asp?cp1=1
If NACHI members (or non-members as well) will rate this MSNBC story perhaps they will cover more of the same. I would urge anyone with any interest to follow this link and rate the story.
We're NACHI. Get over it.
