Fortune teller's service

Ran across this on the 'net. Wondering how the power feeds this establishment. Up the conduit to the box with an ajar cover, then the meter? Or would the power be coming up inside the wall to the meter? Or would the fortune teller tell her EC that a red tag is in his future? smile

The last time I had an inspection at a fortune tellers place, it was histerical.

I rang the bell..."who is it??"....'electrical inspector'
A short pause..."what do you want??"

My reply was 'you should know!!'

I left a red tag for No Entry.

Seriously, the utility feed probably goes into the disco, then to the meter, and out the back of the meter to a panel.

Depending on the POCO (JCP&L/Atlantic Elec).

John,

About 30 plus years ago, my old boss did that with a "Fortune Teller". He knocked on the door, She said, "Who is it?" So my boss said, "You tell me!" So she open the door and said, "I see you are a wise ass!" Then everything went well after that. smile
