I had the same problem when I hired some blonde landscapers to put in new sod. I had to keep yelling out the window "Green side up!"

AgentPothead: NicoFinn: AgentPothead: Hahahaha I bet they didn't hire an architect since they aren't legally required too now. Spanish engineers.

This happened in Chile, you capullo.

Yeah but the company is 100% spanish. I'm assuming they flew over their engineers instead of using locally sourced talent.

Well, there's the problem.  They built it to work in the Northern Hemisphere.

In my best, but still incredibly deficient, pocketninja voice - This is a perfectly excusable error and is probably just the result of northern hemisphere engineers working in the southern hemisphere.  I once installed a toilet upside down for the exact same reason, so I can understand their confusion.

Give 'em a break.  The first time you do something, there are bound to be a few little mistakes.
