cabling horror story

so haven't posted in a while guys but thought you all would enjoy this. This guy charged 25% of what we did for a small cable job. The company went with him saying cable is just cable. He also tried to sell them an ip office which they went with us because they knew better. He claimed he was avaya certified. When i asked him which certification, he said AF3000. LOL


Oh and when i asked him why nothing was even labeled, he asked me why it should be.

first video is the wiring second is the guy

Take Care

I have always wished that my computer would be as easy to use as my telephone.
My wish has come true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.

RE: cabling horror story

That cabling job... Was he serious? That looks like a sad joke. From the patch panel in the wire tray to the lack of vertical supports.
