Darryl, Joe,

This is a Classic for sure!!
Almost unbelievable. It makes me wonder what else these people have done that has gone undetected.

Thanks for sharing that with us!

This has to rate as one of my all time "absolutely incredible" violations. Mixing Gas & Electricity -- the possible scenarios are scarry!
Thanks Darryl for your conscientious efforts in protecting the public, and also for sharing this with us.

This just may top the "floating receptacle" pic you have, Joe...



This is just amazing... I can't find words to justify this absurdity...

Sparky: I think so too, it is is terrible!

Hi folks. I'm glad you are finding this post interesting. In my experience, it has been an unforgettable violation. I have a few other memorable ones also that I will pass along to Joe shortly. I am building quite a notebook of interesting pictures as I go about my daily job.

Brings new meaning to the term "hack job."

The people that did this should be thrown in jail for recklessly endangering people's lives.

It's amazing what callous disregard one trade can have for another. I agree with CT; this shows a reckless regard for life and property. This is indeed a criminal act!
