Go on service call behind a fellow tech that was there a couple times for a condenser breaker tripping. Bad part is the wires were long enough to reach factory cap mount.

How do these guys have jobs and who pays for the cap that THEY fryed by inproper install?
I would not have a job if I did that. I wouldn't wanna work with guys that worked like that and if I did find out we would chirp him till he either smartend up or quit.

The important questions are, did the customer have to pay for the repair of the repair and did the "tech" receive the highly coveted boot shaped bruise award?

This "quality" of work is rampant throughout the US in residential work. I've worked for bosses who would have told the guy that next time he needs to make sure there is more tape wrapped around the terminals or to just make sure it hangs in dead space off the wires so it won't rub.
