Remember framers... cut boards not cords.

Yes, they blew their budget on good wirenuts and couldnt afford j-boxes or staples. I almost got fired over this, but.. those R/Y nuts, if you use your lighter and flare the soft collar out a little and drive a 3" sheetrock screw thru the tip and cut a stick of 3/4 EMT in half, you have yourself a wicked cool blowgun. Good for many a extended lunchbreak.

Boxes like the second from the bottom always remind me of this refrigerator:

Unfortunately I had to deal with quite a few boxes of that kind myself. Some bad things are universal.
