Re: Story's, Anecdotes, and Other Stuff of Wisdom

See, Demetrio? My boss used not to take our blueprints as... well... blueprints, and he modified the location and size of the pipes at his will and past (vetust) experience, he having some 40 years of experience in this field (meaning having his cup full).

Long story short, the company went bankrupt due to continuous repairs, reworks, re-"engineering" of the systems in all factories we erected. And they never worked at client's satisfaction.

Sad. Needless to say, all of us engineers resigned and disbanded. Short after that, there was an explosion due to a modification in the safety system of a diesel chest made by him, ignoring the blueprints. Fortunately nobody was there.

That's why I say, "things happen". But I digress...
