We are working for a really (really) rich school district at my current assignment.
Our plans called for the electric and data to be installed as per the prints.
The school electric engineers didn't like how the conduit was routed, so they made us change it....five times.
The 'Big Guy' loves to charge the shit for change orders, so he doesn't care.
We (Actually the guys doing the hard work) finally got it approved:
Then when I had to move some of the plumbers soils pipe to get back to a trench that had another change.... I found out they were using cast iron.
So I asked the plumber...
ME: This district isn't hurting for money-
HIM: Nope, and they don't care how much they spent on your change orders in the MDF rooms.
ME: So why are they putting that cast in that's going to rot away in 40 years?
HIM: LOL, you're not the only one that asked. We tried to let them let us us PVC, it's even in the specs that it can be used, we even had part of "A-bldg" done and they made us take it out.
ME: Oh,,,, ASO someone hase a relative that's in the cast iron supply bussiness.
HIM: Yep, most likely, and it's a cheap, crappy product that won't last 25 years.
