Not Me

About 11:30am today, our power went out. Like a dutiful little consumer, I called the utility company and reported it. Before too long, a truck from the power company arrived at the intersection. It sat there for about an hour while the workers...worked. Then it left.

Not too long after, a truck from the phone company arrived at the corner. What follows is a synopsis of the goings-on down at the corner:

  • phone company truck and power company truck
  • 
phone company leaves
  • 
2 power company trucks
  • 
2 power company trucks and a “supervisor” truck
  • 
3 power company trucks and a “supervisor” truck

  • 3 power company trucks and 2 “supervisor” trucks

  • 1 “supervisor” truck leaves
  • 
the other “supervisor” truck leaves
  • 
4 power company trucks
  • 
3 power company trucks
  • 
2 power company trucks

  • it appears they are going to replace a utility pole
  • (I am called away to the phone--when I return....)
  • 4 power company trucks

  • they are replacing the pole

  • 5 power company trucks
  • 
4 power company trucks
the pole is going up
  • 
power company trucks begin to leave
  • (I leave for an appointment)
  • (power is restored while I’m gone)


As I’ve worked in my office today, I’ve kept an eye on the progress being made at the intersection. With all the excitement at the intersection, all the training and manpower involved, all the hours invested, and effort put forth, watching it happen has made me feel like a kid again, and I just want to say....















WHATEVER IT IS—
I DIDN’T DO IT!!!!
