To be fair, this sort of thing does happen from time to time in
perfectly legitimate situations. In some cases, parts need to be
acquired or maintenance schedules need to be arranged in order to do a
propper repair. So just because you see these, don't immediately think
it is bad techs rather than a temporary, "keep it working until you
can do it right."

Uh... no. Quick hacks happen from time to time to keep things running.
Layers upon layers of quick hacks that are never cleaned up (see
picture) happen through incompetence. If not on the part of the techs
then on the part of the managers who rushed the techs onward to the
next task.

Always time to do it over, never time to do it right == incompetent.
