I don't need no stinkin' fittings, either.

Ugh! How could anybody do work like this? I'd be ashamed to have anybody see it. [Linked Image]

So an employee at the GAP tells his boss, "I can put a light up at the entrance if you give me Saturday night off."

Because please Lord don't tell me a professional did that.

I'd love to see what's at the other end!

They don't need a bender, just a coupling and about 3" more EMT.

The other end is probably an extension cord.

Just because it works, doesn't mean it's safe.

Near where this pic was taken is a university with an "Inspection Technology" program that turns out "inspectors" in nine months. Many of these students go on to jobs with towns.

I am sure this install has been seen thousands of times by these students. I wonder how many recognized that there was something wrong? I wonder if any brought it to the attention of the business, or the local AHJ?

It's a safe assumption that those who have the authority to get this fixed- either owner or AHJ- just don't care.

There's certainly enough clamps on that conduit. Must have purchased the 5 pack.....It's like the person that did this knew better but didn't have any of the proper tools...
I don't know anyone that would have the skills but lacked the tools AND would still do this... There's more to life than channellocks and hammers.
