One of the most frustrating things is that there is no real rule book or guideline to doing this.
One department doesn’t talk to the other.
Everyone has their own set of rules.
So in the end I often end up working totally bass ackwards.
For example, 20 or 30 phone calls, and I finally ended up talking to the right department to find out that yes indeed I WILL have to install ( have installed ) a fire suppression system.
OK fine. More research to find out who does them. Who the other trucks are using. Who is not going to rape my wallet to get it done. Of course everyone has someone different to deal with. At least that wasn’t too hard to figure out which one to go with.
These guys were great, but tell me I have to get the REST of the truck in order first.
THEY are actually the last people that I need to deal with after everything else is done.
OK fine. So now I need to figure out that path. Luckily they know a guy. Many of the other trucks use this guy. The metal fabricators use this guy for work on food trucks. All Good.
Enter the Gas Man ( actual name with held )
Well just trying to get this guy on the phone is like pulling teeth from rabbit.
He never picks up, he never returns calls or texts. Oh yeah, all good.
But after checking around some more, ….. this is the guy. …… great
It probably took a month to track this guy down and make arrangements to meet.
Then he never showed. Never answered my calls. Never returned my calls.
I don’t have time for this shit. I need to get started so I know where to go.
I hate when people are like this.
Head back to the Fire suppression place.
WTF??? Why do I need to deal with this guy??
Do you have another guy?? no
