    Been very busy on our firm,starting jobs & still not returned to any,god knows what mess they are in.
    Had a subby go to one of the jobs,I wasn't there at the time,anyway I go back & basically lights are not connected to appropriate switching in rooms.
    I definitely ain't putting it right,so meets this guy,he says I was told to put up the lights for you,I said yea,dont you test to see they are working correctly,no it's not what I was told to do.
    Im I the only one who gets this ****.

    Don't work with youngsters much anymore but when I did there weren't too many who worked on initiative probably through lack of experience but these days the standard reply is "not my job" or the reply Cliff received.

    No Cliff like I said monkeys get paid in peanuts, you get the minimum for what they are paid, sign of the times I'm afraid

    Well they be a lot older and wiser, and saying the same thing as we are now about the younger generation, I would imagine, think it's called growing up.

    Was the subby in question given all of the information he needed? A good, legible set of plans or suchlike?

    If the person he is working for is too busy to go to the job or explain what needs to be done properly then you can't expect the subby to get it right.

    This is why I'm staying a sole trader [well two of us], but with expansion comes this sort of nonsense IMO.
