Back when my brother and I went to different schools together……

Report writing gone Wild!

 

What a pane in the glass!

     The East window of the NE Bedroom has broken glass----I recommend repairs to prevent injury due to cuts by a licensed glass installation company.

Sparky is at it again!

     The receptacle at the North side of the Kitchen is broken with exposed energized components----I recommend immediate repairs to prevent life threatening shocks by the licensed electrical contractor.

Dang Plumbers anyway!    

Plumbers and sawzalls     The plumbing drain from the Powder Room toilet runs thorough a floor joist and the joist is failing, I recommend repairs to the joist and relocation of the pipe to prevent further damage by the licensed plumber & the licensed general contractor.

    

What did that guy have for Lunch?

     At the furnace there is a gas leak, I recommend immediate repairs to prevent possible gas explosion by the licensed heating contractor.

Charlie, Sounds like my new and improved reporting style. I modeled it after the prime time news shows.

Posted by James Quarello, Connecticut Home Inspector (JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC) over 9 years ago

Jane, the English language could sure use a good doctor:)

James, the prime time news has its share of wrestling with the English language as well.

Nutsy always said, when he worked for you, you were on verge of hysteria. I see what he means.

Posted by Steven L. Smith, Bellingham WA Home Inspector (King of the House Home Inspection, Inc.) over 9 years ago

Steve, I copied and pasted those right out of that last report of yours you sent me----are you now saying it was Nutsy that wrote it?

This is so funny and it's bizarre how we "read" the obvious so differently!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (Realty Austin, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 9 years ago

Um, the glass company caused injury due to cuts, and the licensed electrician caused life-threatening shocks, the pesky plumber caused further damage and the gas guy a gas explosion!?  Get out the torches and pitchforks!

Some days I have gas explosions...  what would you recommend I put on the report?

Mr Charles,

As a certifried home inspector assistant, soon to upgrade to the certain-to-be-fried designation, I resemble those comments.

Nutsy

sounds like the lisc. repair person is a klutz and needs protected from the house.  cw

Russel, the mind does funny things doesn't it?
Jay, does it have to go on the report?
Nutsy, self awareness can be painful can't it?
Chery, I believe you have nailed it!:)

Charlie - Looks like you put the fun factor into your home inspections.

Posted by Carol Culkin, Overland Park (Reece & Nichols) over 9 years ago

Carol I do----but I do try to not to many sentences like the ones above find their way into the report:)
