The weld symbol is correct, and I duplicate it in a sketch because I never know when I'll get another welder that does not know how to read symbols.
You may be right and the welder may be at fault, but before you go blaming the welder, make sure it wasn't someone who said to ignore the drawing or provided the wrong drawing or said that the stupid engineer didn't know what he needed. And save a thump or two for the QA people who didn't catch it. Hell, the weld shop foreman should have caught it.
