Darn christmas lighting guys

For the second time this holiday season I have been called from my hibernation to travel up to 40 miles each way to reset GFI outlets. In both cases when I got there I found my Taymac cover wide open and some jimmy rigged extension cord plugged into the same outlet where my transformers were plugged into. If it were up to me I'd abolish christmas lighting period. Most of these guys are fly by nighters who take no consideration of what existing load is there that they plug there contraptions into. baggies , duct and black tape over extension cords connected together and laying in snow and puddled water etc. When is someone going to regulate these marauders? Unbelievable.
