Are side cutters dikes? Are skil saws skillful? Are Kleins the only pliers you have? There is a lot to be said for naming the correct tool. I get aggravated when I ask for a pilot drill for a screw and they come back with a step drill. Really? Crescent wrench, bowl wrench, fence pliers... Good luck trying to explain cross peen hammer to a carpenter guy. I have to specify a crack hammer or three pounder or I get a straight claw rafter hammer every time. How about a t-handle hex key. or pulley wrench. Crow foot? A grease zerk, not a zit, an Alemite not a button head. A pillow block not a pillar, and a conveyor bearing, not a slide bearing thingy.
Dont get me started on the guy that came through and tossed all the brazed copper gas can spouts with rubber hoses in the trash and bought those gov approved plastic non-working monstrosities for fuel cans so we dont have fumes. Probably the same guy that hoards the only funnel in the shop, and uses plastic trash cans. He was supposed to be the safety guy, putting out plastic barrels because they looked clean. Fire regulations spec steel drums for obvious reasons with a swing lid to smother a fire. ON and on about smart acres that really dont know or check. Too lazy to get smart.
Some things are just wrong. The state of Indiana requires cable for cantenary suspension to alternate directions of cable clamps for signage and traffic lights. Industry dictates you never saddle a dead horse, so the saddle of the clamp goes on the live (long )side of the wire rope with the u-bolt on the short side (dead end). So some inspectors give you grief on the odd count if they dont like you. Various writings to the state went against industry standards, as they set the program and it is in the political arena.

It is not getting caught in the rain, its learning to dance in it. People saying good morning, should have to prove it.
