Wordless Wednesday (Leaning Pole)

Every day when we're driving we see this leaning pole.  I called it in over two weeks ago, & they
haven't come out to fix it, so it must be hard to fix or no big deal?  At least it's leaning away from the road.

  4. Yikes - I guess it's not a big deal since they're taking their sweet time.

  5. Holy Cow... that is leaning so far it is almost down. Maybe they are waiting for better weather.

    1. I thought that too, maybe the ground's too frozen right now to do anything.

    1. I know, and there's no houses right there. I wonder if it got hit by a car or if it just started leaning...

  8. Damn, but as like anything they won't ix it until it breaks for good.

    1. Crazy thing, that...leaves you shaking your head sometimes, doesn't it. :)

  9. Why worry? The wires will hold the pole in place. Right?

    1. That's EXACTLY what my husband said, with more than a tinge of humor, lol.

  10. It'll be a big deal if it goes down and takes the power lines with it!! Brrr! I've also noticed that there's just not the same sense of urgency there used to be.

    There was a poor (huge)deer that got hit by a car here and was in the middle of a two lane road...people were swerving into the opposite lane to avoid it (which put them into the blindly-coming-over-a-hill path of the other traffic) --- people called for three days....the deer was finally moved after there was a head on crash. Luckily no one was hurt.

    1. Unreal that there had to be a wreck before they moved the deer. That's crazy too...crazier even than this.

  11. It drives me nuts when I see something I think needs immediate attention and they take their sweet time fixing it. Jeez!

    1. The lady on the phone sounded so sincere about sending someone out to take a look, so I'm putting my faith in her that she did. If it leans any further though, I'm calling again, lol

  12. YIKES! I'd want it fixed as well.

    I saw artwork hung at Noodles and CO. The frame looked like the glass could fall out at any moment. I said something. They just said, "It's been like that for awhile." I'm like, "Well I just wanted you to know. It could fall one of these days and hurt someone."

    1. It's the WORST when something is dangerous and intentionally not attended to, ugh, I HATE that

  13. What if it snaps the wires one of these days? I hope they fix it soon!

    1. Seems like they could do something, but maybe they can't when it's cold like this? I dunno... if it drops they'll have to do something. Seems easier to prevent rather than fix, but who knows.

  14. Oh! yes I see it like Liz says surely they have to fix it soon

    Have a poletastic week LOL

  15. I hope they fix it soon Rosey! We see this after a storm or hurricane! Happy WW!

  16. I guess if it ain't broke, it's not a priority...I probably have half a dozen on my street alone!! lol

  17. You should give it a name while it's still there. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Could still cause some damage if that falls! Don't want to lose power anywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yikes! At least it's leaning away from the road like you said. Maybe it's on their to-do list :)

    ReplyDelete

  29. That's a really bad slanting pole. Hope that they get it fixed soon before someone gets hurt.

  30. I am surprise that the pole stood that way for weeks. Hopefully they will come to fix it soon.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Just wow... Thanks for sharing and linking up with me this week. I appreciate it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sometimes I think they just shove the work of fixing something like that on to someone else. Then it just never does get fixed.
