    Tools getting stolen, lost a battery charger a couple of weeks ago. Bad organisation then standing around waiting for someone to do their thing or waiting for materials you could have got yourself. Wrong order of work as someone does not know how to do a gannt chart.

    When someone's idea of running a job is to throw all the trades into a room at the same time and hope everyone gets along.

    Hi Mark,

    Might I enquire as to the purpose of this research?

    As you can see, we're quite a tolerant bunch, only hating most people ;) Knowing what your aim is with the research may give a better quality of answer.
