Simply pathetic.

Lewis, I see you're in Idaho. What's your interest in Washington State stuff?

I live 6 miles from the Stateline and have been Inspectiong in Eastern Washington for two years now, my company, Snowy Mountain Home Inspection, LLC, is licensed in Washington and I am licensed by the WSDA.

Because of the SPI Requirement in WA, there are only a two or three Idaho Inspectors who cross the border, there are many more Spokane Inspectors crossing into Idaho, typical Border town business.

I've had to deal with the state a few times recently, and let me tell ya, they are on a different planet than the rest of us. While most of us return phone calls promptly and follow through on things we say we'll do (ie. I'll call you back in two days after I've researched it) , the state apparently does not deem these things necessary for normal business activity. In the private sector, you behave professionally or go broke. In the public sector, it seems, you can do pretty much what you want with no checks or balance system present.

Discouraged in Seattle
