    Default Locate marks on Taken 3

    The wife and I went to the theatre and watched Taken 3 last night. During the car chase where Liam is driving the cop car you can see marks on the road that I think are for a duct run. The marks are fairly fresh and I'm not sure how I caught it as they don't show for very long. It shows up when he is turning a corner in an area where theres buildings on each side of the road. I'm not sure but I think there's also marks for electric a little earlier than this. I thought it was kind of funny.

    Maybe if someone has a way to watch this movie they could pause it and verify what I seen

    Sometimes when I visit friends or family, as I'm heading to the door, I always notice exactly where the meters are. Can't help but scan the house. It's a habit. But if I see that the electric and phone are aerial, I get this "woo hoo" feeling and crack a slight grin. Then I think to myself "What the hell am I so happy about? I'm not here to locate, I'm here to visit and drink free beer". I been locating WAY too long.

    I was watching "The Walking Dead" and noticed fresh power marks in an alley. Or was it blood?

    That just to goes that when you see markings on you time off, it shows you really care for the job BUT maybe not the company. js

    I used to think a "Vacation" was the week in the winter time when it snowed and all the jobs cancelled. Come to find out, it's this mythical land where one goes to spend all their money, all the while their work continues to pay them.

    I actually did this last may.....even though I was still "On-Call" when I went. My wife hated it, but I loved telling contractors and co-workers I had to end the conversation because we were just about to get on "Thunder Mountain"

    I do a lot of aerial construction too, and I notice everything. Position of the bugnuts, too much/too little slack, framed on the wrong side, good/bad splicing, etc........

    When I go out of town to visit friends or family, I constantly find myself following aerial TV cables and fibers and watching for where they dip down poles, I find myself noticing fiber marker posts and newly plowed/trenched cable paths...

    Then, when I pass through a neighborhood or small town that has tv power and phone aerial, I think to myself, I'd love to have this area to locate in....

    Habits are hard to break, whether they're good or bad...
