Well the season is almost upon us here again in the great white north, I can't wait to see what the phone calls bring.

Right now all there is to laugh at is shockingly poor resumes for jobs

And just think, on some of these jobs the "contractor" walked away proud of themselves for the job they did and the "creative" way they were able to solve the problems they encountered!

sometimes it's not that it's an epic fail, it's that it's a consistent fail. All the way down the front of a hotel.

I think it's even sadder that they have a straight walk and they could've made it about ANY width, but they have slivers against the curb.

I'm no expert at this stuff, but, I don't think there's a single job they did that was done correctly.

From what I can see it's all either not level or has weird sharp angles. Essentially poor planning and design. I can't imagine doing this for 15 years and ending up with those results

The walkway is hideous, the fire pit is hideous. 15 years of hack experience.
