Have you ever had a call where the job was nearly done, and all they needed was for you to put in some wire, and a device?

That's a shallow Handi-box!

Had a few like this over the years.
Most where calls for "rough" inspection.
"What do you mean, the "grounds" are bonded by the MC clamps??"
"Oh, are we supposed to cut-off the armor?"
"What do you mean?; the "other guy" let it go like this on our last job!"
"The maintenance guy bought the boxes and MC; pulled it in, and we called you to finish &, get the permit" HA-HA
