In an office remodel, the tenant couldn't be bothered to hire an electrician when they moved a wall- so the rock crew left the light switches hanging. They were later "supported" by resting them on a file cabinet.

Despite this "support," the tenant found it necessary to "move" them with a good shove. The second pic shows where the conduit coupling split to allow this movement.
