    So I show up at my job site this morning after hitting the lumber yard, and there is a cease and desist order from the town building inspector on the deck I am working on saying I didnt have the necessary permits and to call Town Hall "IMMEDIATELY"

    So I headed to Twon Hall with all my paper work that was filed 2 months ago, and confront the Building Inspector. We go into his office, looks over my paper work, pulls a file out and tells me "my mistake" and grants me permission to keep working ( well thanks asswipe)

    So I ask him after, hey, whats up with my permit for 123 Main St ( real address lmao).... they want to get started ASAP. He pulls the file after I showed him my copy and asks me "so you are doing vinyl siding and windows ther, that's all?" I told him yes and he tells me "well going to have to get back to you on that one...town records show there isn't even a house built there yet" The damn house is 25 years old LMAO

    My old company was selling our commercial building in Maryland Heights. When we originally bought it we converted 1800 sf of warehouse into additional offices. Maryland Heights didn't even do construction approvals back then so all the improvements were signed off by St. Louis County.

    So when Maryland Heights does the inspection for our sale, the guy finds an imagined problem and says it doesn't matter that St. Louis County approved it, we had to tear it all out. The guy was on a power trip and I had to be both good and bad cop, kissing his a$$ while letting him know that we were lawyered up until he relented.

    Unfortunately not. There's an old saying. Those who can't, inspect.
    An old house near mine has been converted into apartments. Of course, the city has no records of the change ever being made. The people who own it live in San Francisco and don't give two shits about who rents from them as long as they get their rent. I was asking the city to do something about the literally 20+ cars the tenants park on the street and the city's response was that being that they don't have anything showing it is a rental property, they really can't do anything. WTF? The damn place is less than 100 yards from city hall. This morning I got outside and some dickhead from the place had parked in front of my freaking driveway. Now I have to take time to battle with city hall because they are completely incapable of being bothered unless I start pounding on the desk.
