    Default Isn't that just fun...

    So I step outside my house to go pick someone up from work and what do I see. A sheet of ice in the middle of the road. First though, this better not be a main break. Sure enough, water main broke, 10 feet from my mailbox in my front yard on the edge of the road. Now I'm gonna have to go out and locate for it. And I'm not even the on-call guy. Son of a....

    Hmmmm! I'm thinking, if I'm not on call, I would wait for the system to work the way it should and when the locator arrives to respond to the call out, I would be standing there with a cup of coffee in my hands, smiling!!!
    I must be F#%@ing Daffy!!!

    I thought about that too, but the water company decided it's one of the wait until the morning emergencies. So since I live in my locate area, I will STILL get the emergency. lol

    I have a water main running under my driveway. It sure would be nice if it would bust under my driveway making the City buy me a new approach to my garage.


    If I thought I could effectively speed up the process I would rapidly open and close the fire hydrant at my next door neighbor. With my luck, I would be caught and everyone on my block would get a new driveway but me................ just sayin'.

    It almost worked out perfect. The bosses only wanted me to work a few hours today. They called the emergency in at around 12:30PM. First thing I thought was...YES! I get to end my day in my driveway. Soon as I get done locating the sup calls and says. Just traded back one of your tickets to go work on. (*&*%* Ruined that idea. lol
