Maybe a customer asked for the light to be in a certain spot and required the service cable to be adjusted so it would fit. Glad my license wasn't on this job.

PS Who says "neat and workmanlike is enforceable"?

I wonder how much static they have on that coax that seeems to be weaving in and out of the SE cable?

Not much seems to be plumb here to anything... Seeing that SE run so close to that door doesn't seem like a brilliant idea either, I get visions of the little backyard oddities being stuck behind it as Umpa goes inside to get another PBR
