Ok, Ok let me explain I'm in Mass. and in order to get my associates license I need to complete 125 fee paid inspections under the supervision of a licensed inspector. So I have been calling and emailing inspection companies.
So this gentleman who will remain nameless is nice enough to return my call, tells me that he has worked on the regulations committee and starts talking to me about ethics and liabilities, so I ask him if there is any way he can help me in acquiring my license or if he knows anyone who takes on new inspectors?
He says well yes I take on new inspectors the one thing that I ask of them is that they work for me forever. ![icon_evil.gif](upload://1gvq2wV2azLs27xp71nuhZOKiSI.gif) So I'm thinking sounds like a pack with the devil to me, and didn't they abolish slavery over a hundred years ago?
So I told him that there was no way that I would be willing to commit the rest of my life to any individual whom I have never met before.
So he says "well I wasn't offering anyway", so I start to get this warm fuzzy feeling coming over me, and I ask him how can he possibly justify that frame of thinking? He didn't have to. It's his business to be run the way he wants to and that my friends is the beauty of living in America.
So I posed one last question to him before I went and kicked my dog.
I asked him what would happen when all the old guys retired and there were no new guys to take their place because the old guys refused to train the new guys unless they signed a pack with the devil?
To this he amused himself by telling me that this would not happen because his company would persevere and be one of the only conglomerate companies left.
Not if I have anything to do with it!
