I just love to talk and listen to Thai construction workers. They are really plugged into some interesting stories.
A lot of times the workers are fairly skilled and enjoy doing good work. But they understand when the boss, the subcontractor, wants to skim some profits. How does it work? The subcontractor goes in and puts in a fixed price bid to do a house or several houses. The case in point is a big subdivision around here. Then he needs to ‘extract’ some extra money. How does he do it? He corner cuts his way around things.
Let me be the first to say, in the subdivision I’m talking about — you won’t be able to see it. The workers would prefer to do things right — but they understand — everyone’s got to eat. So the job is kludged up……
You will have a hard time seeing where the short shifting has occurred by doing an after the fact property inspection. These alterations are skillfully done. For self projection remember this easy phrase: Come On-site Nearly Daily Usually More (condum)
