One second thought, go ahead and ask these to a few architects you’re thinking of hiring. Then just go with the one that doesn’t start crying.
Phenomenal Mr. Brown… I feel like I’ve had many of these questions asked, through a thin veil of course.
I´m not crying yet
Jody, this is hilarious! Unfortunately true as well. Wouldn’t you just love to once, when one of these come up, hand back a blank piece of paper and say, “here is something for nothin”?

I hope this isn’t akin to spraying graffiti on one of your beautiful buildings but in homage to “Shit Architects Say” please read http://theviewfromhere.ca/2012/05/25/have-you-discovered-the-methods-to-keep-your-writing-real/ and let the deep seated anger and sarcasm fly.
For all the enthusiast architects, there is an exciting contest

get a chance to win great prizes.
I own an engineering firm and “how many times can I change this before you charge me” hits us hard too. You are hilarious and I sent this article to all of our architect clients.
And waste a perfectly good blank piece of paper?!
