    Not yet, but I can post some pics of what it's like to be up **** creek, literally, I was working in the manure and took some pics.

    Now where the hell did I leave the paddle?

    What kind of stories you looking for? Stupid homeowners? Engineers that shouldn't be working anymore? Near death experiences? I could go on for days! :rolleyes: :drinkup:

    Every job is a story....We dug a simple hole for a deck footing just a while back and the neighbor (who was previously informed) continued to water his lawn and fill up the (what once was) footing with water. By the time it was all said and done and re-excavated, that little footing had grown to a huge hole that took 6 plus yards of concrete....poor contractor on the job had dark hair when he started that job and grey hair about half way through. All we did was show up about 6 times and dig and re-dig and re-dig.....
