Want to see a truly colossal screw up?

One of my competitors did this to a customer’s boiler ...

That should be round tube of 1” steel. Don’t start a boiler without water in it folks ... if they’d introduced water after the fact it would have blown the building up.

No kidding ... then you’ve see your fair share of extension cords in water haha

At a side huddle they just hired a maintenance repair worker for small motors and such. I’ve been asked to show him the surrender between AC & DC. A REQ for the gig. Can you guess it’s government work?
