So today was one of those days and a Monday at that! Today I was to Ditch Witch about 300'-350' of a hilly residence for an electric line being put in.........I'm working with a contractor I know so I'm a sub on this job. Miss Utility came last week, did their thing and today was time to get rolling. First the rental company didn't have the machine I needed this morning but that was straightened out and on I went. I get to the job, walk it to see where I'm working and get started. I make it about 10' with the Ditch Witch and guess what, Miss Utility didn't mark something.........what a suprise, I mean who would have ever guessed that? Well that something was a whistle I could hear over the wide open 20hp Honda engine........GAS. I shut down immediately and grab my buddy/employee and tell him to in simple terms to get the hell away and get the maid lady out of the house about 50' away. So I do the phone calls and everybody but George Bush shows up sirens going and suited up. Gas is shut off, THEN marked and I am able to continue on my way. Glad thats over! Oh wait, then I cut trough Verizons phone service to the house that was also not marked. Not just cut but grabbed and ripped about 50' out of the ground before it surfaced. Did I mention the Ditch B*tch rolled over 2 times (wonderful, non-manuverable, three wheel design). Now that is all over I can go out and take care of the tire on my truck that decided today it would get a leak. There is still about 3hrs and 45m left in the day for something else.
