So you may have been super speedy and a bunch of phone calls and caught the thing very early and everybody sort of got to a handshake deal, but if it's not in the record somehow, if it's not sort of a clear description of what happened, what decision was made and how that decision got played out, if that doesn't make it into the written record, two, three years from now, nobody's gonna be able to remember that that happened and it's not gonna be there to sort of back you up in terms of, no, no, no, we made sure that this was corrected and here's how we did it, so that down the road, you're not open to problems down the road, or the owner isn't, or the GC isn't. That part of keeping that clear written record is partly about the communication, because presumably you're using it as your communication tool, but also it's partly about looking to the future and your hope is that nobody in the future is ever gonna read that memo, like because why would you ever want anybody to ever see any of that after the project's done? It's just that if they do need to see it, it's a big deal.
