So, Monday I hit a 300 pair phone line.
Broke the conduit and made a hole in it- didn't knock anyone off.
No- it wasn't marked.............because the Foreman had me digging outside the dig permit.
This is what $28,000 looks like when it's not being wased in DeeCee.
Yesterday, some utility contractor broke the main feed to Hondo, Tx and we were offline all last night and most of today. When the cable rep. told me about it, I forgot to ask if it was just a big co-ax cable, or does the cable co. now own a utility company*?
* The saying goes- 'if you hit a fiber optic line, just stop and leave the keys in the tractor, because the owner of that line will own the company (for as much as it costs to fix it)"
