Let's all blame the plumber for this one.


But seriously, what were the installers thinking? I'm sure hoping they were thinking "Wait a minute something ain't right here".

This one is my favorite if the rooms window looks like this at this hotel I wonder what the room itself looks like? [ATTACH=CONFIG]38529[/ATTACH]
By the way I tried saving this to my computer and then I resized the image so it would take up less space but the website didn't show that the picture was accepted.

So I copied the whole url into the picture attachment tool and that worked. So is that just broken or will it still work later or do we have to use a website like Image Shack again? I don't mind doing that and used to have an Image Shack account at one time and can certainly do so again but straight from the computer is easier.

As an engineer I am offended by this. I would hold the contractor equally to blame for such stupid mistakes, providing that MOST of these pictures are not "photoshopped".

As for the seemingly stupid doors on the second level, I HAVE seen this and it was done so to allow a forklift to bring materials to a second level storage facility. Not at all stupid.

Not at all stupid.
Except some are "man" doors at 36" and would not accept a 40" x 48" standard pallet. I respect engineers. They do hard work. Work I find tedious and too tunnel visioned for me. However, I have stood on jobsites arguing with them that "it won't work", finally having to succumb to their design just to show them that it didn't work. Then bill them for the hours to redo the design so it will work.
