: : : Saying : "You can't see it from my house". Used frequently in the construction trades. A minor flaw or imperfection that is noticed by a co-worker might elicit this saying. Most often the flaw would have no effect either structurally or asthetically. Basicaly it's used to dismiss an imperfection
: : : as too trivial to redo.

: : I like it.

: I'll be using it. Pamela

I am familiar with a version of it: "You can't see it from a galloping horse."
