My personal favorite is the customer who calls in July wanting the attic exhaust fan they bought in Feb. installed at the farthest point in the 150 deg. attic you could possible get from the scuttle hole. And while I'm up there would I be a pal and spray the watermellon-sized hornet's nest that's in the peak with some kind of bee killer. And try not to muss up the 30" of cellulose insulation they just had blown in, they want to keep the depth uniform.

I couldn't have said it better!

I think we can all relate to that one! Us residential sparky's that is...

Fred, May I paraphrase a little and add that one to my Sparky's Laws ?
