Well, things aren't exactly the way I said the last time.  (Variants: That's not what a professional home designer would have done; That's not what I had hoped for; That's not what I expected - I expected miracles, mind-reading, magic for little or nothing, preferably nothing.)  Note:  This doesn't include genuine differences in definition, e.g., masonry 'veneer' in lieu of masonry 'wythe' wherein veneer can cover more than intended and wythe is not commonly recognized; however, 'thingy' will count against.  Before The Architect.
