I just called a disco order into the POCO

If this is a re-siding job, I would have left that little piece of the wall undone until I had to detach/reattach the Service drop.
That's how I did my re-roof a few years ago. I loosened the attachment bolts, slid out the old shingles, slid the new shingles under the mounting plate and tightened everything back up again.
The way that this job is done is just begging for s strong wind to come by and rip everything down.

OK, it's not a re-siding, but an 'addition' to a single family residence.

Beside a good gust of wind ruining this quality carpentry work, the POCO drop was low enough to get hit by a truck.

Needless to say, they should be surprised to find the POCO drop cut at the pole and laying amongst the debris on the site!

Sorry, I looked at the remnants of the tarpaper on part of the wall and jumped to the wrong conclusion.

In any event, I agree 100% with the disco order.

No need for the 'sorry'. I had another one today....worse than this one. Disco order called in & troubleshooter is in route!

Some guys are going crazy; must be the sunshine?

I blame it on the attitude that "I don't understand what you do...so it must be easy".

Maybe if a DIY program showed someone getting knocked on their butt instead of showing a harmless (but scary) spark when some dummy is playing around with electricity people would take this just a tad more seriously.
