It's a cubic yard dumb nuts!!!!!

Holy crap this industry is toast. Just had a National call me about a bid they needed revised. My bid did not reflect the amount of debris present and I needed to change the wording. When I asked what wording was incorrect she told me I need to bid in cubic CYLINDERS and not cubic yards. WHAT!!!!!! She instructed me it is industry standard to bid in cubic CYLINDERS. WTF!!!!!! After about ten minutes of trying to explain to her she was wrong I gave up and hung up the phone. Needless to say I am probably not getting the bid.

It absolutely blew my mind today. I can't believe what this industry has fallen too. Sad part is it will only get worse.

It's New Math??

And here I thought a Cylinder was an object, that had a volume in cubic units as in:
v = pi * r^2 * h

Where:
v = volume in cubic units (yards, metres, inches, centimetres, etc.)
pi = 3.142 (I'm too lazy to write out 999+ decimals)
r^2 = radius of the cylinder squared (radius times itself)
h = height of the cylider

So you mean it is now a unit of measurement?

You should have asked, "How many cubic yards = 1 cubic cylinder? "
