SOMETIMES IT PAYS TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!!!!

I was getting ready for work when I looked out the window and saw the utility company starting to erect a pole in front of my house. They were going to position it directly in front of my picture window.

Absolutely no way was I going to permit this. I gulped down my last bit of coffee and went directly to the crew supervisor and told him in no uncertain terms that I was not going to permit his crew to put that stupid electrical pole directly in front of my picture window.

He took out a plat map, a map for pole locations and a right of way document and explained that it is the best location for it. I told him it is not the best location for me and when I came home from work that day I did not want to find that pole in front of my window. I told him I didn't give a hoot where he put it but not in front of my window.

I felt pretty smug as I drove off to work because I felt I got my point across. I know darn well they are afraid to put it there now....

Ah..... the feeling of power...........

. And then, I got Home!
