Nashville surveyor Robert Hinson Jr. is the author of a new book about the city’s surveyors.
The book, “Tennessee Surveyors: How They Work, Where They Work and Who They Work For,” was published last week.
It comes on the heels of a book published by the same author a year ago.
In that book, Hinson says he and his wife, Sarah, met surveyors during their time in Nashville in the late 1990s.
They became friends and started a family.
They have two adult children, and their son is now a Nashville firefighter.
In “Tennesseans Surveyors,” Hinson argues that Nashville’s surveyor corps is one of the best in the country.
“They do their jobs with great dedication and dedication,” Hinsons book says.
“There is no better group of people than the people who are there every day to do the job.”
Nashville surveyors do their job with great devotion and dedication.
There is no worse group of men or women than the surveyors that work for this great city.
—Hinsons wife, Sara, on surveyorsThe book also includes a number of anecdotes from surveyors in Nashville.
One, Hinson says, is about a surveyor who asked a man why he couldn’t marry his wife.
The man said he wasn’t a virgin.
Hinson said the man told him he didn’t know how to explain that to his wife and she then asked him why he didn´t marry his first wife.
Hinsinson says the man said the wife was a “virgin.”
The surveyor then said he would have married his second wife.
Hinson says that’s not the only anecdote about Nashville surveyORS.
He says he once went to a meeting at the Nashville Airport where surveyors were being paid $2.50 an hour.
Hinesons wife Sarah said he told them the airport was the only place he had to live because the surveyor there was in a coma.
She says he asked for his pay but no one ever heard from him again.
Hinson also writes that some surveyors have asked surveyors to do jobs they don’t want to do, including helping people who have been killed in the line of duty.
Hininger says he has seen surveyors take the position of looking after those who have passed away in the last two years.
