The other ones were out in the truck!!! Too far to walk!

Besides... he gets to bill for more parts if he throws in an extra "jumper" here and there.

What is wrong with that? It might not be ideal but in an ideal world you would have zero wire nuts just a single continuous wire. The picture does not show if there is enough slack for the left and right wire to be hooked together either. That might have been the best option. My objection is the orange wire nut. You can clearly see the color theme is yellow so that should be a YELLOW wire nut not orange.

A little background. This is one of the wires to the condenser motor. It was an OEM replacement motor for a Eubank wall mounted system. The wire leads are long enough to reach all the way into the controls section. To do that requires a few more panels come off and little effort. Someone was too lazy to route the new wires properly, so they cut and nutted into the old wires. Why there is a second nut, I don't know. I see things like this a lot in these systems. They are at cell tower sites, so rarely is anyone around to watch you or check up on your work. There was plenty of slack in the line, I removed the jumper and one of the nuts. I find this kind of laziness unacceptable when working on someone else's equipment.

In that case you need to tar and feather the person who did that!

In the end, whatever you do, make sure it takes you longer and cost you more than if you actually did it the right way. That is the true mark of a hard worker.

Really, seems like they were just following your previous instructions...

That was a sarcastic remark about people who put more time and effort into getting out of work than if they actually just did the work. We all know those people.

Then there is the small issue of wire insulation - 4/64 minimum in a space with refrigeration components.
