Holiday Shocker

"Oh, where to begin! The so-called professional I hired to fix my home stated he was knowledgeable in electricity and could take care of some wiring issues I had. After he was through, my power would sporadically go out. My sister knew a master electrician and he came to take another look before I got my holiday lights up for the season and the actual pro found that the other guy had severed the cables from my main electrical box to the outside meter; he said he was surprised that I was still alive and my house was still standing."
