that kind of stuff makes me stop and actually go in and notify/scold the folks in charge. done that several times. I saw a huge leak at a HD, told the manager(not a job I work on, offered to no avail), and it leaked for 5 more weeks. it was a huge mainline leak, spilling into the parkinglot, turned the grass island into a pond, and the guys were mowing right thru it still.
