"I just have to relate this story to you all. Today on my way home I noticed a particularly long line of cars, in both directions, at the stop light ahead. Three police cars with lights going-- uh oh an accident for sure. The police blocked off one side of the road so cars had to be directed around, this is what caused the delay. But I didn't see any accident. As I got closer I noticed a wire was down halfway across the road. Ah, a power line so they were calling the power company to move the wire. But.....I thought it didn't look like a power line. As I got closer here comes a fire truck. Three firemen jump out and get the cones to cordon off the area. Finally it was my turn to drive by. I looked at the police officer and said you do know that's only a telephone line???? He said "is that what it is"? I said yes-- would you like me to move it for you. He said that would be good cause he didn't touch wires. I jumped out grabbed the wire and threw it off the road. Everyone cheered and honked.... Three firemen, three cops and all it took was a little old electrician to save the day. I could not believe they were that incompetent.
