When the first thing you do on holiday is look for the CU and any other substandard electrical work to give oneself that warm glow of national supeiority.

You have 100s of random screwdrivers, in all the garish hues of the rainbow, from sets that are all missing a 4mm flat.

Or is this just me?

Your customers get neat and tidy wiring, even when it’s hidden inside a consumer unit.

Your wife/husband is always moaning about the huge mess of wiring around the back of the telly.

Conversation goes something like, i’m Sure that’s not safe, all those wires etc. Do we really need all of them?
Reply is something along the lines of, of course it’s safe, who is the qualified electrician??
