    If this is anything like the damages in this area, the company will never make a statement on what happened. You will only have the Contractors "Knee Jerk" response, "Locator's at fault!"

    Even if it was a cut and dry mis-mark, you won't have any response from the locate company stating that, "There was a systemic gap in communication and we are working to isolate the issue so this will not be an issue in the future." They just remain silent so it appears that the locating is always the issue.

    The good news, if it isn't a locating issue, the company will still pay half.

    The other day it was in the high 50's and pulled up to a new cell tower locate. there were mounds of dirty and almost 3 dozen turkeys on or around the mounds. I spotted a blue necked turkey. I have never seen one before His neck was taller than the other turkeys. When the turkeys started moving off I saw the plume. It was not a turkey. It was a peacock.

    I am thinking kids now are checking the glass door site and more before taking jobs. USIC in southern WI has had such a hard time getting their quota filled that they had to hold a job fair in Madison,WI for three days. Also heard a guy with 17 years in decided it was enough. These locate companies do not like us tenured techs, but it will bite them in the ass some day. The upcoming talent just doesn't want to put in the time.
