What does it take to get the boss to do something he keeps putting off?
Answer? Apparently an ultimatum.
Been bugging the boss to have the fire extinguishers serviced. The fire marshal pointed it out LAST year but failed to give us a re-inspection date so guess what never got done? Yep! The stinkin' fire extinguishers. So I started "reminding" him about it because nearly a year had gone by. A whole year, mind you! I told him the fire marshal could come at anytime...and he did. Now I'm not responsible for it nor do I have to pay if we get fined but I'm the one who has to face the guy when he comes back to my desk with the paper and wants to know why they haven't been done. I'm the one who gets nervous. Why? I don't know. I guess I figure I didn't bug the boss enough or at the right times. *shrugs* Anyway, luckily the guy was new and very understanding. He made a comment about it and didn't post a fine. I did ask him to put in a re-inspection date (which he hadn't) just so the boss would do something sooner. He did. He went right out and got them checked and they are back already. Why couldn't he have done that months ago? Why?

Our inspectors here are very hit and miss, 9 months one time, 2 years the next. But they also service them while they're on site

That's convenient. We have to call someone or take them somewhere to have them checked.

Probably because there wasn't an ultimatum... *g*
That's something that gets people off their butts. :)

Must feel nice it finally got done!

Yes, just wish it had been the day before. I still haven't told him that it was me who insisted on the re-inspect date. That's my little secret. Shhhhhhhh!
