I was called to a look at a bad stucco job. When I arrived, I found this.

I once knew a guy that stuccoed a refrigerator.

This is even stupider than that!

Well, that's one way of keeping the handyman out of the box laugh

Wouldn't that be cause enough to call for a disconnect?

If they're dumb enough to do that, just imagine what's on the other side of the wall...

No, too hard to imagine that. Cut the drop at the pole and use a bulldozer to remedy the house of the stupidity.

Reminds me of an empty small shop... I walked by and stopped because something inside had caught the corner of my eye. The meter sat directly on the wall, without any kind of base. Weird. A closer look revealed some moron had drywalled in the meter base making the meter sit flush on the wall...

Maybe when the rat gets into the meter pan from inside the wall and starts a fire/causes a short?
