I am also very speculative of what I require as my criteria in judgement for this competition. I am just wondering what Nick is thinking right now.

Nick I am offering a 32nd place prize of $.10. The only criteria is their name cannot be Joe, Jim, James, John, Fred, Sam, Bob, Bill, Kevin, Robert, Kelly, Nick, Troy, Juan, Jose, Dale, Jeff, and their last name must rhyme with Stencil and their first name has to begin with Russell.....

Besides that its Open season for the 32nd place prize....

Nathan what your family has built does not impress me, what really impresses me is the guy who drives a 1972 Ford Pinto and simply uses JUST an outlet tester and carbon reports....the way reports were done in the old days....

Russell, you re certailnly entitled toy your own opinions and your own perception of success, it's all good man.

I happen to be more impressed with the Inspectors that are making a good amd some great living for themselves and their families. That means more to me than a big conglomerations/franchises.

Just mny opion.

Not sure why you had to open your mouth and try to ruin something fun here that Nick started? I jumped in and tried to add to the fun for the brotherhood at large. I simply assed a 4th place prize since there are so many good people here participating.

I made 1 and only 1 criteria and that ws they had to be a real home office. I did that so to give a chance to a good inspector who has no chance of competing with some multi place. You coming in here now and trying to make a Mockery out of that just shows your lack of professionalism and camaraderie to your fellow brothers here.

You feel the need to be the party pooper? good for you. I would highly doubt that too many would agree with you, but hey I could be wrong. Its happened before and I am sure it will happen again,

Hey guys, my donation/offer still stands. $25.00 to the 4th place winner with a real home office.
Prize sent via PayPal or check, or an inspector outlet gift certificate or credit, which ever the winner prefers.

Jim

Yep... as predicted from all of those (only a couple actually) with "compensation" issues... it didn't take long for all the "posturing" and belittling to begin.

I received a text today and made the comment " I swear they look at success like it something they should avoid". I will not say the persons name but his initials are Troy Pappas .

To me many of them are like Kmart telling Walmart they are doing it all wrong....

But then again, I thought even more...and come up with the conclusion, for some reason it is better to knock successful people down because that is easier than admitting you can't become as successful as them.

The even funnier thing is there is NOT a single successful person who is not willing to help those become more than they are now if desired....

It was a simple contest which turns into a FU debate over and over and over....

Well Russell, you failed to say Timothy or TJ. So, neglecting your comments after what is highlighted in red, I will just assume you have voted for my office. I thank you.
