Default Abysmal workmanship

I spent all day in a hotel conference room today... The hotel was completely
gutted and redone over the past year or so and only recently reopened under
a different brand. I got to looking at the alignment of the various outlets,
jacks and switches on one section of wall. I don't think any two of them
were installed at the same distance from the floor or ceiling or a level
line. What was also amusing is the location of the peep hole on the door...
note that the push bar is at the usual 36" from the floor. To see through
the peep hole youd have to be at least 7 feet tall! How could anybody sign
off on such lousy work???

In the bottom photo it looks like the floor is not level. ;)

Well Hell! I use a wheelchair and I could see through the peep hole on
that door. What's your problem?

Hospital for six months which was a real pain actually and
figuratively. Used my cell phone to get online for many things, but
chatting was too much of a pain with the pecking out of text. So
didn't come here for a look see.

Still got a bunch of recuperating to do, but came home mid December.
Thank God!
