Got a call for an upstairs partial power, which turned out to be a tripped breaker from mom & daughter going at it with the hairdryers simultaneously.. The homeowner then asked me if I could fix a 3 way switch in the garage he'd tried to replace.. Here are pics of his terminations on the switch (traveler/common were crossed, beyond the obvious here).. I also took issue with the light installation (with UF cable)...

Once again.. Job security! :P
