Got a call for an upstairs partial power, which turned out to be a tripped breaker from mom & daughter going at it with the hairdryers simultaneously.. The homeowner then asked me if I could fix a 3 way switch in the garage he'd tried to replace.. Here are pics of his terminations on the switch (traveler/common were crossed, beyond the obvious here).. I also took issue with the light installation (with UF cable)...

Once again.. Job security! :P

OK... "heads", it's better than a "UL listed" dollar store extension cord... "tails", we're happy because he put the wire on the right side of the screw instead of the left...

DougW, trying to find joy in the little things...
