I think that brick layer has probably used up his 8 of 9 lives.

I would rather beg for forgiveness then beg for permission.

While this is clearly problematic - the bricklayer is not completely at fault - he arrives on day one to complete the job - the site is not prepared and he has other jobs lines up for tomorrow. This should have been taken care of by the owner BEFORE the bricklayer arrived.

Good point Ann, but he should have refused to perform the work in the interest of his own safety. Next time I run across a mason with extra curly hair...

Maybe the bricklayer had heard of the use of concrete around a conduct that has service wires without over current protection inside a building from the power company, to make it "not inside the building". And thus he figured that bricks are equivalent, and that what he did would be appropriate. He should have left the head open, though... eek
