OK, we have 13 things leaning to what not to tell a client/customer, so how about what NOT to tell an AHJ?

That ground rod hit a boulder about 3 feet down, so I cut it with the sawzall.

Don't worry, I gave it a few whacks after I cut it to hide the saw marks....:)

The rod would not go any farther, so I cut it & drove the top off-cut instead.

I used the gray PVC conduit on the elbows, the underground I ran is in the white conduit. I couldn't get the romex through the white elbows so I had to use the gray ones.
