Not even halfway thru the spec book, multiple sections of submitals not included and TONS of submitals that are nowhere NEAR the spec'd equipment.

Ok, if you must rant, let's get a good honest rant going here. I mean, you have not even insulted the submitter's sexual orientation, heritage, etc.

-1/10 until you submit a new rant.

Revise and resubmit.
The following issues must be addressed:

Please spell check.
Lack of rage, outrage, froth and fervor.
Please provide calculations for "tons" and "near."
Humor index is below code-required limits.

Please note that time is of the essence and your prompt attention is required.

What I hate are owners that insist on a submittal package for a piece of equipment that they specified with no substitutions allowed. Hey dumbass, I am not submitting on anything you specifically called for by manufacturer and part number.

Whats fucked is stuff like this.

All the cleanouts are called out as "tapered thread, bronze plug"

On the submital sheets they put a check box on the model they are submitting for and circle it.

5 of the 6 they put the check in the box for gasket seal, abs plug, which is DIRECTLY above tapered thread, bronze plug check box.

they got one right!

There is nothing i hate more than assembling submittals.

.......well i take that back........these O&M requirements (O&M's im currently assembling) are going to be the death of me.......

Most submittals are a fucking joke. Especially the ones where no substitutions are allowed. Hey asshole, if you spec "X" and only "X" and I have "X" delivered to the job (verified by your super and deliver tickets) and installed then why the FUCK are we submitting it again?

Oh yeah, to keep a bunch of worthless fucking paperpushers busy so they don't have to stand by the motherfucking watercooler and gossip about Desperate Housewives on Monday, American fucking Idol on Tuesday, The Bachelor on Wednesday, Mad Men on fucking Thursday, and their worthless lazy ass motherfucking honey do lists their nutless husbands won't do over the weekend on fucking Friday (all in preparation to leave work at 1 pm so they can go to Lane Bryant and get a new fucking moo moo to lay their fat asses around on the couch all fucking weekend eating goddamned twinkies complaining about how fucking "exhausted" they are after "working" all week)

Fuck.

Construction submittals?

finally someone feels my pain

You have failed to submit an even basic spec'd rant.

0/10
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 12:21:52 PM EDT
I'm in the middle of submittals right now for two schools. Over 400 line items per school. I hate my job right now. Its LEED also.
Link Posted: 9/7/2010 12:24:24 PM EDT
You know what else i hate?

Fucking 8(a)s. These motherfuckers get work because they are blacker, more female, or more native than me. Then they sub out 95% of the work (gotta have that all important 5% self performance of "misc Labor/clean up"). So they get their numbers together (after they beat everyone up for another 10%) then mark up everyone 150% (minimum) and laugh all he way to the bank.

Cocksukers.

Government Contracting at it's finest.

You need to have your secretary bring you a blowjob and a cup of decaf.
