I think it's safe to say owners are the worst, I'm Workin on an apartment complex and the owners will spend 1000s on something but complain over something as small as 100 bucks... I'll be excited to move on.

I wonder if the electricity knows that it's not supposed to shock anyone or start any fires because the installation is exempt from the NEC........

In my personal experience electricity is pretty dumb with very little potential geared for learning anything.
