I apologize for the quality of the photo but you can still make out something that is extremely odd to say the least. Anybody see something strange? LOL

Well, I have heard about that newfangled directional boring ending up with gas lines through sewers, telephone cables through gas lines, hey, even EMT through handy boxes!

That is a good one though. Things that make you go "HMMMM".

This is in a poured wall. Someone actually ran a piece of rigid right thru the box. LOL I guess it was in the way and they were too lazy to go around it? Really lazy I guess because they did it before the concrete was poured. Very wierd. I was told that there was a receptacle in this box, must have been tight! Just thought I would share this photo because it is something I have never seen before.

Your lucky, I guess. I wouldn't want to see this, unless it was being demolished
