I've been at it over 20 years. Some of the things I was taught would scare you, it scares me sometimes. This trade is always changing, whether it be new material, new rules, or just new and likely improved work procedures. We as lineman need constant updating, although we don't normally get it. Some older guys continue to teach young guys bad habits. I had a young guy cut a primary neutral when I wasn't watching, nothing happened, thank God, except for me giving him particular s***. Scary part was he was a 4th year and should have known better. He didn't, and refused to understand when I tried to explain it to him. I had no choice but to make the rule to jumper a neutral before you cut it, no exceptions. He eventually complained to my boss that I wouldn't let him di things his way.
