Man in blue: Oh, wait...ok, I see what the problem is now...it's the architect's fault.

So glad I let the Plumber serve as general contractor for my bathroom remodel. He became responsible for screw-ups and challenges for all his subs..When I tried to tell the guys not to put the vent pipe between the studs where the medicine cabinet would go (clearly shown on the plans), they treated me like a dumb broad and did it anyway. When the drywall guys went to install the medicine cabinet, they had to call back the plumber to move the vent. .And new floor concrete poured over the lip of the floor drain so that the flooring wouldn’t fit right, twice? I finally played dumb and called the boss ("Is it supposed to be like this? Will it shrink when it dries?”), who called his guys stupid *#@&! and had them chip it back. .More stories on this “little” project I could put in a book.
