Thankfully it just doesn’t look like it was as serious as I originally thought.

What suprised me most during my brief stint as a cable installer was that there was no wire fishing involved in the process (and while I understand the reasoning, ie it is labour intensive and presents liability issues) rather “stapling along the baseboard” is the proscribed method.
This is an “extreme” example, as for anything this extensive you’re going to wrap a cable around the outside of the house and drill out from the second floor room.
The problem here of course is the customer just assumes you’re going to fish the wire through the walls and keep things perty.
(and to be clear, this is NOT my video)
Ok, I’m nipple deep in learning. Spending time learning things that sound like sep-ted, numerous provincial acts, and assorted other things related to the job.
I’m not complaining really. It’s just that between my brief foray into cable installations and the new “new” job I feel like I’ve spent half a year training, rather than working…
It only feels that way because it’s true.
The good news is that it seems to be going well, thus far at least.
