Total Disaster?

From M.B., a BICSI ICT-certified cabling installer from the U.S. southeastern region and senior communications engineer specializing in switch and wiring infrastructure for small-to-medium enterprises, comes this breathtaking double shot of cabling disaster writ large, as found at separate job sites, no less.

Conversely, in terms of causation, these images seem to evoke the “First Law of Holes” (or “Law of Holes”), an adage which states, per Wikipedia’s definition, that “if you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.” The past installers here did clearly the opposite.
