I've been trying my hardest to comply with the notes on a set of E-sheets I've been given, but #4 is a stumper.... These outlets just dont seem convinced!

Yes, you're right.

I'm sure what's meant is "convenience outlets" rather than "convince outlets."

I can see that you are lost as...

If you can't convince a receptacle audience then how can you expect to nail down your extras?

Get it together man....

BTW no one ever reads the print or its scale. It takes time away from construction. How do you expect to make any money doing that?

Randy, you will have to know where the outlets were made before you can approach them with a dialect to convince them with.

This reminds me of the signs on the emergency doors in one of my local supermarkets: "Warning: This door is alarmed."

Really? It doesn't even look mildy worried to me!
