They are scripted because if they showed what actually goes on in these types of jobs the viewers would probably nasty their drawers and the government types would be on their way to the job to shut down the work because pretty every job of this sort can not be done by the rule book. I is impossible to not break regulations dreamed up by people with no experience in the real world. Paper pushers, bean counters, and other assorted useless folk whose goal in life is to put out of business anyone who would attempt to pull himself up by his bootstraps and make a financial success of his life.
I hear all the time the lament, bring back American jobs, like we, inherited them and therefore own them, got news for ya, we didn’t and we don’t. They were ours as long as we earned them by the sweat of our brow, and we could do them cheaper and with higher quality. We are no longer a nation of builders or creators, but a nation of whiners.
Rough men and women built this country and until we become like them we will be losers on the financial battleground.
Where come from anybody with more then 4 teeth is considered a showoff and is trying to be ‘above his raisin’, but when the shtf you would be wise to have him at your side.
I believe in the ‘takes all kinds’ philosophy.
Yes, bean counters and (non-government) paper pushers, too, for the level of economic success that we enjoy.
