Don't Let Your Participle Dangle...

By
Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc.

Dangling participles are often funny. A good example of this is "Squished flat by Bubba's pick-up truck, Fluffy sniffed at what was left of the chicken finger." Well, lets hope that it was not Fluffy that was  squished flat by Bubba's truck. Anyway, this is a good example of a dangling participle.

But how about dangling lights? Many unhandy homeowners are often looking for a quick fix to dark basements and attics never thinking of the potential electrical hazards that exist by leaving the light fixture in this condition. Now how long would it have taken the installer to make this right during the installation process? Another 2 minutes to bond the ground wire and install 2 screws? Makes ya wonder what they were thinking...

 

 

Don't make the mistake that many new home owners do. All houses, new or old, need a complete home inspection by licensed professionals. Trust the inspection of your most valuable asset to the best inspectors in the Brentwood, Franklin or Nashville, TN area, the home inspectors for Complete Home Inspections, Inc.

I hope you or John can schedule my clients for Tuesday.  I am on my way to the basement to check our my "participles", my daughter the English would be pleased with the grammatical reference.  

Thanks for all the help and advise in Larry's blogging class.  You two are making it fun for us.

Hi Michael,

Hard to believe that someone wouldn't have taken the time to install two screws and close the fixture. That is basic. Wonder what the major's yielded?
