I realize that there are a lot of people out there who are inspectors for various industries/trades who have never actually done any of the work themselves, they simply passed a test and know what the code book says but fail to understand what actually works in practical application. I had a 50/50 chance on which inspector I was going to get and unfortunately, I got the ball-buster and have learned my lesson!
I guess he had a choice- be an inspector or a teacher- "Those who can't do, teach".
