The thing that bothers me with other inspectors is that there are contract documents and welding codes that have to be followed and if someone isn't doing their work correctly then it's the inspectors job to let them know it. However, you can be pleasant or you can be a jerk. I choose to be pleasant unless I am provoked. I had one guy turn in the worst weld test coupon I had ever seen and he wanted to argue with me about it. I finally lost my cool and told him off. I never heard from him again. I showed the coupon to a friend that is an inspector at a union training center and he laughed and said he wouldn't have even wasted his time calling the guy. I started working on industrial welding and cutting equipment before I took my master electrician exam but it has helped me as far as pay at my work. I find my work interesting most times and that has kept me here for 22.5 years. Every year there's new technology. Some of the machines I work on now are basically computers inside. Several now have usb or card reader ports and there are some you have to have a palm pilot or laptop to get into the programs. I still haven't gotten the ice maker fixed on my refrigerator. It makes ice but the auger motor won't run to dispense it. I was going to order a motor to put in it but I think there's something else going on because the ice in the bucket is a little wet and is freezing together in a lump in the bin. Instead of guessing, I think I'm going to call a repair guy. I found a local place that has good reviews. They aren't cheap though. Minimum repair is $150.
