Ok, maybe that's not the best intro to a thread, you'll just have to imagine Jim Carey with a tool belt here.....
We've all been on those service call where Johnny homeowner meets you at the door, Time Life book in hand. That's normal, no prob.
But there are always those few that stand out in the crowd, if only to inspire awe from the trade.
Case in point;
I answer a call for a malfunctioning switch, am greeted by a slightly agitated gent, who is sputering about "that hardware store guy" .
Apparently he asked what would be needed to install a switch in the wall,and he was sold a box, switch & plate.
He actually did a rather good job of it's installation, with one flaw....
guess it yet?..
No wire !
