They told me to bill them, giving me the impression I won't be called back, which didn't hurt my feelings at all.
Weird job, a bit odd, anyway, from the start: I got 2 or 3 calls from "Dave", when I stopped by in my car to eyeballs things a guy walked up, "you Dave?" I was told no, he was in the jobsite trailer, but he'd tell him I was onsite. After waiting a bit I started talking it over with the nail benders I'd be working with, Dave never appeared, and I had other things to do so I left. Day of the lift, still no Dave..., finally while I was putting my rigging away, I noticed an older guy lurking around but keeping his distance, I guess that was Dave? Still don't know.... Last I heard, via text, the reason "Dave" gave me for wanting to a single pick was that the "owner" (not the project engineer, head honcho, Bossman, or other commonly used terms on a job to denote the top man, but "the owner") wanted to challenge the carpenters. OK...., he acomplished that! The site is in the middle of town, easy for me to drive by in the car, or fly over, and hopefully I get to see how it all works out.
