Spotted on a walk to the ocean, this is a marvel of truly mediocre upgrades. The added plastic buttons make you wonder if the individual tenants were left by an absentee landlord with the responsibility to replace faulty equipment themselves, and to ponder just how ragged the original hardware was that it made sense not to rewire it. Then again, perhaps the buttons are assigned to unlabeled sublets for mothers-in-law, or even for small businesses. Maybe what appears to be lazy is in fact a hasty badge of entrepreneurial zeal.
