Great idea here!! Love the #10 item in the first post - bedrock is found by Electricians driving rods, not Geologists!!
Got the same 24/7/365 cable untangling [or unweaving] situations going on also - when I was a Drum Tech [which also made me the repair tech, carrier of drums plus amps and cables, and all that baloney because no one else could -??] that was the deal.
Now, it comes with LAN work, then home entertainment stuff for everyone in the neighborhood!!
Like you said "Sounds glamorous, but really is untangling cables 24 hours a day", just my stuff doesn't sound glamorous to anyone except maybe bored extra-terrestrials.
I'm jealous!! Thought that changes and additions after drywall is hung, taped and topping is drying only happened to me [joke!!]
My favorite for these on our Bank projects is there's always some changes to the walls with the cladding in them, plus the ceiling spaces are cladded.
Here's a few to add to the Sparky's Laws list:
* Unibit falls out of chuck and into a finished wall when drilling the top plate on steel stud framing,
* The speednut that you hand tightened enough to hold the ballast so you can grab the other one, holds fine until you just touch the 2nd stud - then it lets the ballast fall,
* Your last orange wirenut for that same ballast falls out of your hand, then rolls away so fast it cannot ever be found again - resulting in 93rd trip to truck for more,
* The fixture with the loosest lampholder allows the last of your T8 lamps to fall out and "Pachinko Ball" bounce it's self clear of the fixture - ends up all over the floor,
* The open unused free spaces on the subpanel's bolt-on bus are the only ones without the screws [trip 94 to truck],
* Plug your battery charger into an existing receptacle - when plugging it in noticing that it's cover plate is almost brand new, while the rest are old and cracked - after pushing the receptacle into the 2 layers of drywall laminations, it stops on the 1/2" raised ring, then emits a shower of sparks,
* Removing a panel cover and having it "Attack You" when it springs away from the wire packed subpanel,
* Finding out from your Inspector that he/she doesn't like the #14 green conductor connected to a 40 amp 2 pole breaker, nor likes the orange wire for the common neutral - all in your ready to inspect new subpanel.
After assuring yourself that it's not a dream, you see the same thing! When you remove it, the next day there's a hostile note from some specialty type vendor telling you not to mess with his stuff,
* All the LOTO in the world cannot stop the most determined morons,
* Drywall stocking crews figure the best places to stack the sheetrock would be in front of the gear, subpanels, right under your ceiling J-Boxes, across your floorduct outlets, across your open sawcuts for floorduct, against the wall with the most electrical outlets, trapping your job boxes in a restricted movement,....,
* The one and only room on the entire project that you go to work in because there's no one doing anything in there, becomes priority 1 in the minds of all other trades - resulting in 17 people working in a 10' x 10' room,
* The 1/2" KO on the hot panel that you cannot shut down, pops out with such ease, it bounces all around, then falls right against a hot subfeed lug and lays against the deadfront mount - but luckilly doesn't blow up because no one has messed up the paint on the mounting bracket [this happened once to me and it scarred the HE** out of me!!],
* The sizzorlift you are using on a 250,000 square foot concrete tilt-up, has a top speed of 0.001 MPH when the deck is lifted even 1/192" up. When lowered that last fraction of an inch, it takes off at 0.002 MPH - so the trip across the building takes all day, regardless if you have the lift all the way up to 20 feet, or fully dropped,
* Same sizzorlift goes into tilt alarm when running over a piece of 1/2" EMT,
* Pulling that same lift out of the mud because some clown took it off-roading while you are on lunch break.
I'll have some more for this thread after this weekend's work
