Almost a decade ago, I worked for a general contractor who filed a claim for compensation for construction time lost. We lost a month of production due to flooding at the job site from a tropical storm. The site collected all the water from the surrounding area in the large excavation we’d dug for the future building. This “Act of God” issue lingered, unresolved and disputed for months and, as these things tend to do, ended up in the hands of lawyers.
One day, my boss and I went to see our lawyer to discuss the claim. We were escorted through the office suite up a flight of stairs. Hanging high on the wall near the plush mezzanine was a brightly colored kite, which turned out to be a painting.
My first thought?
So I’m making my own kite.
