The funny part is my father was a sparky, I grew up running romex and conduit.

I keep a pair of dykes handy for more than sparky work.
Pulling nails, field dressing birds, and more.

There are more who look at most jobs as just that than one might believe. In all professions.

As you said, they might pay more attention later, but I doubt it.
If they can’t figure it out when things are easy, they aren’t gonna have a chance under real stress.
