Default Pushing people's buttons, just for fun!

OK, so I was bored last night and felt like pushing buttons. I was working on a bid for a restaurant, and there is about 100' of welded gas pipe on the job. I don't weld all that well, definitely not well enough for gas piping, so I'll sub that part out. I lined someone up & got his number in my bid, so I'm all taken care of.

Then it hit me. I wonder if my old boss would price the job for me?? He's got pipe welders, at least one who could weld a jack on a trailer, let's see if he will give me a price. I e-mailed him and asked if I could subcontract some work to him, so far no answer. Color me shocked

I guess his company policy that no employees of his company are permitted to have any communication with me is still in place.

Eh, I'll let a buddy make some $$ on it, he'll weld it all up for me and I'll make my cut on it.

Oh...wait!! I can bump the pressure up and use CSST!!! There's a GREAT idea!!

Dammit...that's a great idea! I can save a butt-ton of money running PEX underground instead of K copper, and I can sharkbite it all together. I'll be done with this job in about 2 days.

Saweet!!!

Totally agree there, but it's an existing space with an existing meter on it. I'd be all for the idea, but it's not my call.
