    I would be livid if I was the homeowner. I just had a concrete drive installed two years ago and it cost $4800.00. If somebody painted it like that I would want to kill them.

    Did a newer tech do this locate? If so I'd blame his trainer for not teaching proper locating etiquette.

    Was it a low profile type of ticket (landscaping, tv drop) or was there going to be some serious work done out front? The type of work being done does dictate the potential for us marking a job like this on occassion. However, if it was a low profile ticket and there was no work being done under the driveway then I'd be just as pissed as anyone else to see this.

    Wow... a few dots at most across the driveway would have been sufficient... but maybe they are putting in a water main or something on that side of the road?? That would be about the only reason for putting that much paint across driveway (knowing they were tearing it out anyway)....

    I agree on the dots, especially if pictures were taken

    Did his paint gun stick on and he did not realize it or were there other factors involved here?

    Why is it that nearly all oversprays like this are RED?

    Because red means angry, and we want everyone to know how pissed off we are.
