    Talking Just go around the fence.... rant

    So I was marking a whole neighborhood yesterday for a primary replacement, and a homeowner had a 3' high garden fence around his front yard right in the easement, so I step over the fence to mark the lines and he yells at me "don't climb over my fence, go around like a normal person"
    Okay...

    First I didn't climb, I stepped over it.
    The fence is in my way going around it, about 100' would be 100' more that I have to walk, I've already walked about 5 miles today also I'm not in a very good mood..,
    and locating isn't normal walking its walking, bending, reaching and climbing on steroids...
    I know these people will never understand what we go through..
    Needless to say I gave his yard the FULL PAINT and FLAG treatment..
    I painted a line every 3 feet and double flagged every single line.
    After all it's the law.
    : )

    Homeowner - "They still bury lines in the ground?
    I thought they didn't do that anymore!"
    Me - "Yes sir they do."

    Homeowner - "...But you're painting all over people's property"
    Me - "Yes I am. It's the law."

    Homeowner - "My gas line is not over there"
    Me - "Yes it is."

    It would have been great if his dog was out back too.
