Flat-tip screw hit a wire at the panel sending out a shower of sparks and tripping the stove breaker. Boss doesn’t want to pay for an electrician to go out and the homeowner claims I said it was my fault. Homeowner upset with me for frying the wire, boss upset with me because when I explained to the homeowner what happened, I used the possessive pronoun, “I”, as in, “I hit a wire when I was replacing the panel”, which the homeowner is using to say I am accepting responsibility. Boss will have to eventually send a sparky out to at least take a look I am sure.
Thing is, this is the fourth screw up so far this year that I will have to chip in for. At this rate I’ll be back to swinging a hammer by the end of the year.
Anyone else have any stories worse than mine to make me feel better?
