    He did these videos near Canton NC. If you look closely at the numbers on the port-a-john, it shows Canton NC.

    Either this guy is unlucky enough to really love his job and be obsessed with it, or he filmed it on his last day as a locator and he had a mental meltdown from being a locator and went out with a bang.

    Personally, I liked his version of R2D2 and the lunchbreak...."oh...um....I gotta go..." and the puzzled and confused look on his face.

    Seriously, if the guy loved his job, he will probably be fired when the top brass from Utilitquest sees his videos and fires him for abuse of company equipment by using the company provided video camera, truck, safety vest and cones.....

    I'm finally glad to see some type of locating video on youtube....

    Well, that is unfortunate for him if he was an actual employee. His only mistake was using the actual company name. Companies tend to be a weee bit sensitive about that and most prove to have little in the way of a sense of humor. Utili-guess might have been better.

    I think back to the lunch break video though and still LMAO!!

    Wearing his vest with the Utiliquest logo was a dead giveaway.

    It would be very unfortunate to lose your job over. They must be pretty well staffed to fire someone over those videos. I could see a warning and being asked to take the videos down but termination is a bit steep.
