They were expressing concern because there was another surveyor involved that they were having a conflict of information with.
I am going to refrain from going into details here because some of the witch hunter types that read this blog may be prone to misinterpret this post.
A quick note to you witch hunters. If you have a problem or concern about something I have done call me, express your concern, be absolute certain of all sides of the story before you attempt to throw me under the bus. Conducting yourself in any other way will have major consequences.
On top of that if I want your peer review I will ask for it, until that day back off.
OK, that said and back to the topic.
The person that called me was having a conflict with another surveyor and I had done some work in the area. They were extremely professional in their questions and upon hearing my answer they agreed with my decision and moved along without a problem.
My decision was this. The client had yet to pay me for a particular line item and I simply was going to sit tight until I saw some green.
Is money an issue on a project? You bet your sweet ass it is!!
Money is the only reason I do this job and for me to say I do it for any other reason is a flat out lie.
Do projects fail to get completed because of money? Once again the answer is yes.
The only surveyors who can honestly say that money is not an issue is a government surveyor or a drone that is buried in the basement of a big machine and until they sit in the seat of the business surveyor they should keep their mouths shut and most do. Thank you!
Any business surveyor that says they have never stopped a project because of money is a liar. If they kept going even though they were not being paid, shame on them. All they did was open the door for further exploitation of themselves and hurt the profession as a whole.
Some of you may have a different opinion and that is awesome. It's the differences that keep us on our toes.
Make it a great week surveyors and remember, never doing anything for free.
