Just a hypothetical

If any of you have any background in construction (or any other time-sensitive industry) -

If you had a walkthrough for a CO (certificate of occupancy) on New Year's Eve coming up -

and there was a piece of equipment that wasn't working the way you needed it to work -

and the distributor for that equipment sent you the fix and the correct equipment along with installation instructions on 12/20 -

and you thought there might be a chance that something could go wrong since the project overall had been deemed the Indian Burial Ground Project of the Year 2007 -

Would you wait until Friday 12/28 to try to install this replacement equipment, even though it was delivered to you on Friday 12/21?

My idiot client did. Now they're on the phone with the factory to see if anyone can fix their problems by Monday, as my field service tech is on vacation until Wednesday.

Happy Holidays, doucheballs.
