I'm glad you like it.   Laughing 

My Uncle worked on a road crew. He said they needed at least 4 guys to stand around to supervise and 1 guy to do the work.
But, if the work was to be done right, he said, they really needed 9 guys to stand around.   :squee:

I do :love:
But also and above all, I have seen similar situations in other countries too :giggle:
No matter where I was travel through Europe, I have seen 1 construction worker, who really worked and the others stood and smoked XD

My Uncle  always said the 'support crew' was part of the process. :nod:
Now, in Canada, the government uses private companies; and, it seems like the lawyers are the only ones doing any work,
trying to collect fines from the companies, for not getting the work done.   Facepalm ]
