You can often tell how hard someone is working, in the construction industry, by how frustrated they are. This morning one of the foremen, who’s typically hard-working, was extremely frustrated with three different subcontractors. They each wanted a different thing and the foreman said that he couldn’t possibly split himself up into 3 pieces to please each party. With his comical demeanour, we couldn’t help but grin, which is a rare sight on the construction site.
In this day and age where everything is measured by productivity and money, it’s moments like these that keep us moving forward. Having a clownfish waiting for me in my site office also helps.
