After that you should have told someone you found the wire stretcher.

The title "Wire we fixing this?" reminds me of the cable manufacturer guy who told his wife he had to work late, then went on a binge and staggered home in the wee hours. His wife demanded to know "Wire you insulate?"

Anyone who has had to debug even worse problems cause by a sloppy repair job (solder bridges, cold solder joints) can really appreciate the work of a skilled de-solderer (without pcb damage) and re-solderer. Been there on both sides. My last position our solder person was moved to another area and I was told I had to solder myself - no microscope, useless worn out soldering tips, and no serviceable scope probes. I very quickly informed the manager that I was not about to attempt soldering of fine pitch ICs without a microscope and proper soldering tools. I no longer work there...

OK, so the humble wireman (or often today, the surface-mount/BGA rework tech, or name your equivalent) doesn't get much kudos for his job. But anyone who has seen this kind of work being done on their behalf, or indeed been rescued by someone rewiring a complex loom to fix a software I/O issue (seen that happen), will recognize your efforts with respect. What other ancillary roles don't get get enough recognition?
