Here's one that we saw during a remodel. Seems like the AT&T tech ran the cable under the carpet, as later revealed by the carpet removal.

It isn't just the telephone backboards that get infected by fingers belonging to less than competent yet highly overpaid experts. I'm one to be talking because I can't even post a picture here yet but I recently purchased a 39 year old Airstream and you guessed it, there is a perfectly good circuit board that half of the wires have been plucked from and reconnected elsewhere using wire-nuts. The Airstream had two previous owners, both with degrees in engineering. :022:

Got called out on a emergency call last night to a local Pep Boys

Shove that deep into the smallest closet possible and it would look like all the Dominos Pizza's installs around here.
No, that is not me.  Oh to dream of being that handsome.

Around here Dominos aren't even in a closet.  They'll be just slapped up on a sheetrock wall up by the ceiling.  Many times they build shelves around them and the blocks will be buried behind junk they have no where else to store.

That is the same way Dominos are done here.  In the Buffalo Wild Wings the system and blocks are directly over the door to the managers office. You have no idea how many times that office is entered while you have a ladder right there.

That's what they make door openers for :-)  I don't mind putting the systems above the door in the B'dubs office.  At least it guarantees that nothing will get put in front of it.

However, we did have a manager that had to break into his own office by going over the tiles above the phone system.  That was worth a service call to reconnect all the wiring.

Just did a food store, pulled out a Panasonic with voicemail and installed a Samsung 7100.  Customer said "we could never get some phone jacks to work, several companies have tried, could you please make them work?"

Here's why, not sure how it was missed before, have a look at the colours, they must have watched that "how to install a phone jack" video we saw recently:

That's the really sad thing... and it probably took you just a few minutes to determine the problem.

What was really shocking was every jack was different.

As long as the same guy wires both ends of each jack :-)

I heard a story similar to this where one tech wired the GREEN pair and the other tech couldn't figure out why the jacks didn't work.  They worked for the local loser cable company.

The eHow moron though, takes the cake.  And he advertises himself as an "expert".
