I found this quite hilarious.
Builder's warranty guy: "See, they put a nice big rock in that hole, that's a great idea. We actually recommend that our homeowners put in a splash rock to keep the ground from eroding."
Translation: MHI, Inc. recommends a ROCK to prevent erosion problems. Not gutters. Or anything else official. a ROCK. and it has an official name. "Splash Rock". I wonder if I could market those and make a killing citing MHI's recommendation.
And the best part is, the guy said this to a structural engineer. An EN-GIN-EER.
