Default Minion's Work To Be Cleaned Up

Today I had to go check on a job one of the "wonder Kids" had done, and where I'll be next week to "clean up" the mess. No words can accurately describe the job, so here is a picture

Good luck with that one. Looks like a little challenge to clean up and make professional looking. I take it it does not work as is?
Not to derail but here is a picture I took of a house we have been working on for about 8 years. I'm glad I'm not responsible for hooking all these up!

I agree with the rest, that is horrible!

Brian, that room could be done in 4 days. I have worked on voice and data for a long time, its not as bad as it would seem. Once you "dress" the wires in it goes pretty quick, monotonous, but quick.

Jack, I have seen a few rats nests in control boxes but that is usually when they have been demoed out after forty years of service.
Top, try to sort out sixty pair of 1" PEX heating lines that are not marked as to where they go.
It was supposed be a two day hook up and book job. Then the rest of the crew was to hook up the baseboards. It took five days and a bunch of fittings to sort out that mess.
Good luck with that mess, Jack.

I love to go into a client's house and see the rats nest of computer, printer, monitor and all the other cables. I look at them meaningfully and say "Do you really like it like that?" and when they say no, gleefully unplug everything.

They are always horror stricken.
