I worked, for a time, as a utility locator for a communications company. The job is pretty stressful in the area where I worked and I’d often have bad days. A lot of the people I dealt with were total human hangnails. Just real pricks. Usually I’d just have to push through and hold my tongue because I couldn’t be bothered with the possible consequences of pissing off the wrong person. This day, however, was different. This day I had mom on my side.
I was on a residential lot going about my business. It was about 7:30 pm and, after 10 hours of dealing with asshat after asshat, I was ready to go home. I had three more job sites to visit after this one so it looked like it was going to be a while (it’s still an hour commute for me afterwards).
