RE: professional Practice with a segue...

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
And the large hospital job where an employee working late the night before
the drawings were issued for construction the next day, put urinal symbols
in all the nurses stations.  It wasn't discovered until the walls were
closed in and the nurses were given an advance tour of their new facility.
One young nurse asked "What are those pipes coming out of the wall for?",
Never found out who did it.

I have an interesting one....
My boss has started a list of, say, drafting faux pas or mangled terms he
has heard/seen over his years of experience.

i.e.

Riff Raff = Rip Rap
-  Sonic Tubes = Sono Tubes
-  #4 every which way = #4 EW
-  ...and a note seen on some old Architectural drawings in VA.  "All work
shall be done in accordance with the wishes of the Architect and his
 friends".

Any others?

Peggy
