Cable installer bad day redux

Feb. 26, 2016

We've covered this cabling installer's rap masterpiece before in this space. But here follows an alternate, apparently updated take to the piece's video -- that seems to more accurately follow the song's lyrics.

If you haven't seen it before, you need to watch/listen to this:


"Went to a house on a trouble call/
TVs, Internet, phone and all/
Messed up from the rainy day before/
And the customer complaining when I got to the door/
Pulled out my meter, went straight to the drop/
Bad fitting on the end of it right by the block/
RG6 with a barrel stuck out/
Got 12 more jobs that I'm trying to tough out/
Closed up the house box, locked it tight/
Go back and see if everthing's working right/
Call dispatch and tell 'em close the job/
We ain't gotta come back, cuz I done fixed the problem/
Get to the next house, what do I find?/
Got an aerial drop, dude broke the line/
They were cutting down trees and he made a mistake/
He was wondering if somebody could come out today..."
