    I don't understand what I'm looking at. Is that a bathroom stall?

    Yep. With a door stop keeping the door from opening.

    It sure looks like a toilet partition. So, how did that happen anyway?

    I'm guessing he didn't look at the instructions.

    Without more context I'd have to be confused as to why he's sending you a photo of his own foul-up.
    Did you literally sell him a craphouse door?

    Yeah.... I am the craphouse door man of the southeast..... just don't know how to tell a smart fellow I been dealing with for a long time his problem is obvious and self inflicted. Hoping he will look at his photo tonight and realize his good so I don't have to tell him.

    I can't work out which way the door is supposed to open. Towards the camera would hit the wall and away from the camera would hit the white frame (and the door stop wouldn't prevent it from opening, I don't think :confused: edit: maybe it would)

    What am I missing?

    Yeah well.... Context could be better. It just floored me when this guy called and sent me the photo. Door stop hits the wall and won't allow the door to open is all. Had the fellow not been angry about my "defective product", I guess it may not have struck me quite so funny.
  10. HA HA!




    I wonder how he would blame you if he did this?

    At first, I understood his anger about it. But now, I believe you supplied the product and he installed it?

    And, that toilet picture us hilarious! ​

    I like the hand dryers in public restrooms. Here is what the instruction should say:

    1. Hold hands under dryer
    2. Move hands back and forth
    3. Wipe hands on pants

    Reminds me of the guy who used to own my house. He installed and angle stop for the cold water under the kitchen sink in a corner next to the wall. It looked great but you couldn't turn the handle to shut off the water. There were other interesting things as well. It's very scary what some people can do with a hammer and vice grips. :eek:

    We had a bunch of hand dryers in a new school. A creative little rug rat made a bunch of stickers that he placed on the dryers. Looked almost identical to the hand dryers instructions. It said
    Place Hands
    Make Bacon
    It was a middle school and he made his rounds to all the bathrooms and put his sticker over the instructions. I thought it was hilarious. Considering this kid chose to not make it vulgar or anything.

    "Hey Harry hand me a wrench."
    "What size?"
    "Oh, that don't matter, I'm gonna use it for a hammer anyway."

    Instructions for tightening a bolt:

    1.Get bolt finger tight
    2.Place crescent wrench on bolt and tighten wrench so you can turn bolt
    3.Loosen crescent wrench for the last full turns so you can round off the bolt and make it pretty
    4.Go celebrate your work with a well deserved beer and hope you never have to remove that bolt.

    But first,......."
