What day laborer fucked up and painted a yellow circle on that building?

What's wrong with this picture? Can someone tell me? Because... I can't tell...

A.) That picture is dumb.
B.) It's EGG 8. Those aren't Olives. They're fucking Eggs. I'm going to make spray-paint adjustments one of these days to ever "Olive" I see.

That building does nothing more than warrant air strike on Seattle.

*Every. Fuck!

I think it's something about the little rectangular pieces at the edge of the building, there's two that stick out and the rest are tucked back inside the building.

They installed "part i" where they were supposed to install "part j". Happens to me all the time.

I just don't understand who thought Pipe Dream + Eggs would be a great idea.

If you look at the middle of the yellow circle, right on the corner, two glass panes with the pipe design were hung vertically instead of horizontally. Similar thing happened recently at 1521 2nd.

Who cares what it looks like on the outside? The views of the Convention Place Transfer Station are going to be HAWESOME.

@6 wins.

Following up on @6, yeah those Ikea "build your own skyscraper" kit directions can be kind of tough to follow.

The siding itself is the real "oops." What the FUCK is that shit?

Actually, the big yellow circle kind of improves the look, don't you think?

This is right out my window at work, they have also screwed up the glass placement on the opposite corner. The brick building behind is mine...Somebody call O. Monique, I think she works for them.

I don't know that I would have done a filled-in yellow circle. I probably would have gone with simple small arrows next to each error. Yeah, those took me a while to see.

Who knows? Maybe this small mistake will make those places a little more affordable to live in. Oh wait, maybe the added "character" will make them unique and therefore, more expensive. *Sigh.*
