  • Dog sewer job

    We went to clean a drain in the old part of town yesterday clay pipe looked easy .
    had 102' of cable in the line , drain opened cable hung up forward or reverse it wouldn't come out.
    got a backhoe and started to dig it up in the alley were we heard the cable before the hang up,
    8 1/2' to the city main so i had to come back this morning and finish digging,
    Headed out early to beat the rain coming ,only to find a dog stuck in my hole
    Dog catcher didn't start till 8:30 had to do a cowboy lasso to get him out

      I for got my scooby snacks this morning , And He didnt like the bucket so much
      I pecked a few holes in the 6" clay i could see my Spiro root cutter head hung on the clay were some one had knocked out a 3" gap in the back side of the hub on the city's wye just below the last clay 45
      It was just wide enough and thick enough to get wound into it, i just took a pipe and hit it to knock it loose
      Fist time one of my sewer machines had to spend the night i didnt like it much

            If that was me I would be sending this from prison or maybe the Bahamas. We have people queuing up to "fall" in our holes so they can sue the living S--t out of us.

                  I still would have had a fence around it so a young kid couldn't fall in.
                  What would OSHA say about an open hole like that ?

                    When I was building my cellar I had the hole dug, and had the foundation poured and the wall started, and went out one morning to be greeted by a skunk on the outside of the footer and in the back fill area,

                      When I was a kid my older brother went out early in the morning were we were digging a new hole for a cesspool
                      he jumped down in to start digging and came back out three times as fast as when he went in because there was
                      a big Tarantula spider in the hole,
