At one commercial office, I noticed a receptacle in the wall behind the receptionists' desk. In the course of my other work, I opened the closet behind her, and found a neat, if unsupported, EMT run (with inaccessible pulling els). What really took the cake, however, was seeing just how this receptacle was fed- there was an extension cord in the EMT, a cord cap on the end, and it was plugged into another receptacle!

It's amazing, the lengths some people will go to do something wrong.

I've seen plenty of extension cords run like this to feed a permanent outlet, but never run through conduit.

I second the question: Why???? [Linked Image]

I really have to praise Bill for his photo-shop work. Even I, the guy who took the pic, didn't notice until now that the final fitting is a flex 90 attached to the EMT!
