I like that, logic prevailed
You never have a second chance, to make a first impression

That is stupid right there.. Glad logic wins out on that one... I'm not going to say I wouldn't have done the same.. I mean I know I've done something very similar when the right equipment wasn't available to us.. I mean I guess at the same time how much crap would they have given him if he had just said, screw it and called it a day.. due to the power being out, and no proper equipment available, like even if he had stayed @ work, just not done anything due to not having what he really needed to complete the job properly??
Not a big fan of unions, but in this case, glad to see he had an arbitrator!!!
