Was thinking of replacing a roll up style door in my shop w/ a sliding type - Anyway, had the pieces of coorigated metal stacked across the entrance to get an idea of what it would look like. During some winds today I guess the pieces blew down and one blew across the road - Problem is, the power people, must of been a new guy, drove over the piece that blew across the road. Twice. The first time, then when he turned around to get out since the road and area around my shop is a deadend. The guy didn't even make it to the house to get a power reading but what the heck was he thinking - Why not get out and move the piece of siding? At least stop and turn around before running it over - he was nice enough to miss it with one tire the second time over...he probably thought that is why they gave him a 4x4 truck to check the meters w/
They're supposed to get back to me - not sure if I can get reimburced for this since I don't have a picture of him running it over but his tire tracks are there and the fact that he read other meters along my road but mine may help.

The phone man once backed over my wet lawn to turn around instead of backing out the driveway and left some nice ruts. His boss (after getting his ears bent) made him come fill them in on his own time.

Not really like that around here - Just surprised he didn't use better judgement

if that happened in nys the owner of the truck would sue the town for new tires and punitive damadge who inturn sue you for allowing your siding to get in the road

The driveway from the county road to the house is clearly marked - this guy was driving out of his way on private property - what if he ran into my shop instead? Can they drive around the side of the house and into my backyard hitting my chainsaw & swingset in the process?
Probably so w/ todays lawyers
