    Good point about the extra amperage involved when using more wire than necessary. It is something that most DIY’ers would not think of. Too bad you didn’t ask him why he did it this way & get it on hidden camera. It also reminds me of something someone would do decades ago when things were cheap & plentiful.
    “So what’s a little extra wire gonna hurt!”

    You are right when you said rookie, but I remember this guy like it was yesterday, because he was a know it all. This wasn’t the only mistake he made. As far as using the extra wire in the walls in the future, if there was a problem, that would be good, if the staples were loose.

    Looks like something I might have done in High School when I didn’t know any better so it was most likely a rookie who did it. It’s good to have a little bit of slack to work with just in case you might need it for future repairs but that amount of slack must have made some sort of record but we’ll never now since most of them remain hidden. Nowadays just based on the high cost of copper alone that is definitely taboo
