Quote from: Krusen on Jan 18, 2024, 07:47 PM Thank you Noemi, I now feel much better about all that I have been prevented from doing, due to Covid.I came off quarantine this morning, Shirley tomorrow morning, so free at last.No real mention of food, except for one free meal by the airline. Does that mean there was no problem obtaining reasonable food while those delays were taking place?When there are flight delays, I become a 'pilot watcher' Where they go, I go too. One such time, the desk just kept saying "We do not know at this time how long the delay will be". I returned with the information that the flight crew had walked to the sit down restaurant, and ordered a full meal. Shirley and I decided it was time for us to eat too. We finished our somewhat lighter repast, and watched as the crew relaxed with pie and coffee for about a quarter hour. A cell phone message, they got up, and returned to the gate, with us a short distance behind them.So a contractor builds the equipment, and you train the school people how to take it apart, re assemble it, and make use of the associated lighting and or speaker equipment that is attached? Is one of the incentives for the contractor to call you early that he must have one of his crew present, in case you find a defect or piece missing? So your early presence is on your dime, not his?At the power company, I was in the Substation Test Department, and that was a common issue. Sometimes, the union electricians doing the construction did not understand what the equipment was supposed to do, and the contractor called us early, on his dime, to make sure they did not make big mistakes that would have to be undone, and rebuilt.Who actually pays for your trip and training? Is the messed up flying, and rent a car home out of your profits, or reimbursed by someone else?KRUSE'N
