When asked this question, a Journeyman Electrician named Steve said:

"The sharp edge of a "cable tie" after it has been trimmed with "dikes" is very sharp and can cut your hand!"

This can be avoided when using a cable tie gun or twisting with lineman pliers.

Unlabeled wires in a large j-box. Takes forever to find the one you need.

Not leaving 6"s standing wire in the box so the ec later can have something to work with when the time comes :-(

Life's too short for me to spend that much time typing. Here is one contender- when doing an inspection, being asked by a licensed electrician "when did they change that?"

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

FORGETTING SOMETHING or Short Term Memory loss...remembering that part after you just left the supply house! Or getting all the way out to a job and forgetting something you needed! I hate that!

People who know absolutely nothing about electrical, watching over your shoulder trying to tell you how to do your job.

Hah, I do that all the time and I am still pretty young. I hate to see what I am like when I get a few more years on me. The worst is when I walk all the way across the job site and forget what I went there to get.

This is easy! It has always driven me wild when someone loses the damn panel cover screws. Or, did you ever notice how the floor of your working environment always matches the color of what you just dropped on it to a "t"?...remarkable, eh!?
