At first I thought it was a mistake because they had repaired the down spout. However after further investigation I found every one in the complex had been turned around. So rather than channeling the rain water away from the building it's now directed back to the building and after a few years could undermine the foundations. It's a good job we're moving when our lease is up. I hate to speak ill of a fellow maintenance man, but in this case I can't fathom the reasoning behind this.
