Early afternoon day in October on the job site.
A youngish man comes in from the street and into our trailer asking my coworker and I if have a shovel or broom he can borrow.
See it turns out as he was getting out of his truck across the road his cell phone fell off his lap and down onto the street before bouncing right on into the opening underneath the curb. We found a broom for him to use in an attempt to pull the cell phone up from its 5 foot drop. Coworker and I followed him across the street, you know to supervise the situation. After a few attempts with the broom the guy asked if we thought he could just crawl down into the hole. Freakishly, he would have been a perfect fit, standing little more than 5 feet tall and looked to be about 12 inches around, but we both knew we shouldn’t encourage that. He guy ended up deciding that the cell phone wasn’t worth it, gave our broom back, and headed into the post office.
Lucky for you – we snapped a picture so you won’t have to visualize entirely. 🙂
