IDIOT City Workers

today around noon we had the water main break under the highway outside our house. they stood around until about 7:30pm and started digging. it is now 10:45pm and they are maybe 3 feet down out of the entire 10 feet they have to go and they are not even shure if they are digging in the right place! due to the water runnin for 7.5 hours. our yard, and several others are well flooded and its about 15 below out so now half the neighborhood is a skating rink with the possibly of one flooded basement. luckily the water mostly ran away from our house, but it is up to the house but luckily no damage. if these tards woulda started earlier, they could have avoided a lot of this... but no! oh and the kicker, they are blocking our driveway with rigs parked in our driveway. they have 2 backhoes with jackhammers mounted on em digging basically in our yard and a huge generator/floodlight system shining in at least 3 houses windows. no sleep for us tonight!

well you see they follow a special work schedule. work for 15 minutes take half hour break, work another 15 minutes take another half hour break. and repeat until 8 hours have been taken up. and you cant forget that 4 men have to sit around and supervise every man that works, just to make sure no mistakes are made, because we dont want to waste ANY tax pay money on mistakes! no offense to any city workers, i am one, and it doesn't bother me at all, i think its awesome for them i work in a neighboring town and this is the work day for the ones in my town

wow, now these guys have all dissappeared. left their 2 backhoes, light generator, and cube van here and must have hopped in there dumptrucks and plow trucks and left. of course all the flashy lights are still on, the generator light is still lighting up the neighborhood and what equipment/vehicles they left here are still running, in our driveway and headlights are still on
