Guys in 2005 were saying the same thing, and their standards were a lot lower then.

Go and take 17 feet back down. Been there and done that.

ABC liquor boned me out of $13,000 once. Told me I could not afford to sue them so they did not have to pay me. I told them they would spend the $13,000 one way or the other so they may as well give it to me.

I would have paid good money to have seen them when they found out the sign was bigger than the store front I built and the entry door was 2" taller than the opening I built and the opening for the coolers was 1 foot too narrow to fit the coolers and the window openings were all 3" too short and 3" too narrow for the custom built window frames and glass and the ceilings in the bathrooms was 1/2" too low to allow the door frames to fit and the exterior columns were all 2' to the left of where they were supposed to be and all of the wood backing in the walls was exactly 3" too low to work with the shelf system they had.

That's too funny!,reminds me of a situation I found myself in a couple of weeks ago.A "friend" called me to his aunt's house to look at a window that needed to be replaced ,while I was there he proudly showed me approx. 150' of fascia board that had been replaced to the tune of 2000.00 not primed or painted and quite honestley looked like crap! ( I know he did it) by some "contractor", while I'm measuring his window it dawns on me that he's gonna have me measure this window and then come behind me and do it himself!!, so right in the middle of measuring the window I start throwing out measurements like 35 and 2/10ths and 54 and 8/9ths...let's see him go behind me with those measurements

I assume you were dealing with one of the vendor contact reps. I'd have escalated it to a VPA or even higher up.

Then, if I'd gotten no satisfaction, I'd have removed the other debris and bid that item as a NEW health hazard.
