AZBEX Presents: The 2018 Bah Humbug! Awards

By Roland Murphy for Arizona Builder’s Exchange

 

At the end of the year

All across Arizona

Moms and Dads planned excursions

To L.A. and Pamona

 

Each year we call out

All the mean-hearted Grinches

Whose year-end deadlines

Throw the staffs in the trenches

 

Submitters want to chill out

Hug the kids, go see Mom

But Humbug-y due dates

Mean their plans all get bombed

 

Yavapai needs Services

For Green Watershed Planning

Respondents are sinking

It’s lifeboats they’re manning

 

Historic Old Kingman

Wants zoning advice

Four days before New Year’s?

That’s not very nice

 

NAU’s fine Facilities want

Pro Services (Related)

Has ever a deadline been more

Loathed, even hated?

 

Avondale’s carbon slurry

Is creating tension

Since it’s due this week

We’ll request an extension

 

Wupatki Monument’s

Water monitor work

Has submittals due Friday

Why must they be jerks?

 

New Year’s Eve

Good times, they could roll

But Pima County wants sensors

For its sewer manholes

 

Frontera wants sub-bids

To develop storage

If we had the option

We’d serve them cold porridge

 

Layton wants subs

to build a hotel

Their mean-hearted deadline

Makes misery swell

 

A new store for Brake Max

Gets sub bids to Ryan

Go work your submittal

As the kiddies sit cryin’

 

Marsh needs subs to reno

A building in Page

As your partner sits glaring

Unamused and enraged

 

City of Phoenix

Needs help to find leaks

Guess there’s no hiking this year

All over Four Peaks

 

Maintaining/Repairing

Scottsdale water systems?

The deadline says maybe

We should ponder on this one

 

Phoenix again

With lighting repair?

A new Friday deadline

Oh – how could they dare?

 

The Army wants aggregate

Delivered to Yuma

Guess there’s no seeing Aunt Kate

Out there in Petaluma

 

Those are the Humbugs

Take comfort, don’t fear

At least there are fewer

Than there were last year.

 

Happy Holidays from the entire AZBEX Family!
