  1. Too real. Had to install a porch at a restaurant. We drilled into the main power cable, then had to make a hole in the brick wall for the electrician to replace the cable, and because of other reasons we didn’t even install the porch in the end. That day sucked.

  2. Poor Ricky, I can relate. One of my renters wanted me to replace a light fixture for him above his sink on a Friday night. I thought it would be a quick 10 minute job. I pulled off the old fixture and the electrical wiring came with it. There was a 6 inch pigtail connected with wire nuts that pulled right off. Went up in the attic try push the wiring back through the hole and couldn’t find it, so I had to go back down and cut a hole to stick my hand through and find it. Had to run back to the hardware store and buy an electrical box to fill the hole. All this was in such an awakened position above the sink and ended up taking me the rest of the night…

  3. I’ve told this story before a while back but very relevant for this vid.

    >Between high school and college, I worked for about a year as an appliance installer for a private contractor who had a contract with Sears. A week or so before Thanksgiving myself and someone else about my age were on one of our last jobs of the day. We were to install an [over-the-stove microwave](http://thumbs.ifood.tv/files/images/ge-cafe-over-the-range-microwave-oven-appliancist-com.jpg) in someone’s house. At this point, I had probably installed over a hundred of these. So like previous installs, we found studs using the stud-finder, marked our holes for the mounting bracket and proceeded to drill pilot holes. Well, one of the “studs” turned out to be copper piping running vertically in the wall behind the stove. To our surprise, we now had a very serious water problem in a customer’s home. It took us a few moments to figure out what had happened but once we did we got down to the basement and luckily found a valve that stopped the water from flowing. After a call to our boss, we were told to fix it and get to the next job. We cut a hole in the drywall big enough to really see what was going on, brainstormed, and then took a trip to Home Depot to see what we could find. Luckily we found [this clamp](http://www.homedepot.com/p/Mueller-Streamline-1-2-in-Galvanized-Repair-Clamp-160-803/100207414) and some waterproof tape. We patched up the pipe the best we could, turned the water back on to confirm no leaks, mounted the microwave and got out of there. We had a couple more jobs to do and had wasted a few hours on an install that should have taken us no more than 20 minutes. There was definitely a decent amount of water in that wall from the time of the initial puncture to when we found the valve to turn it off. That was well over 10 years ago, and I still think about what’s happened to that house since then.

  4. I fucking died during this scene. Slapstick is so underrated these days. The build up to this was incredible. Season was best of netflix seasons. RIP Lahey.

    Edit: to people who havent seen and need context. This many seasons in its not spoilers. Ricky is kindve a ridiculously stupid character. And for once they play this up as he has his “savant” talent. Then this happens.

  5. I’d laugh, but this is too real. This is only slightly exaggerated from every fucking small project I do at home. A ten minute five dollar project turns into an afternoon and four trips to Lowe’s far too often.
