What Were They Thinking?

Every once in a while we see something that makes us wonder "Just exactly what were they thinking?"

One such thing we discovered last week on our weekly trip to town. For the past month or so the phone company has been putting all their little flags beside the road to mark the place for the lines they wanted to bury. We didn't pay much attention to them as bit by bit they were getting things done.

But what they did last week we're still trying to figure out what they were thinking when they did this.......

I applaud the owner for just nicely spreading the gravel around that nuisance this week instead of knocking it over like I would be tempted to if something like that would appear in the middle of my driveway!


  1. Reminds me of the type of thing that would happen around here!

  2. Chuckle!

    Have a beautiful day ~

  3. As my hubby works for a phone company here in Canada I can only smile and tell you they really do think they own the whole country!
    What were they thinking is right!!!

  4. Unbelievable!!! That's all I can say!

  5. Wow!! Think they just didn't care or are just plain dumb? Either way, it's unbelievable!

  6. I love it when we get to see your firey side! lol Thanks for your sweet message. :)

  7. Just makes you want to shake your head and go "huh?"

  8. It reminds me of the picture that has gone around for years of the Highway Department guy who painted a stripe over a dead animal in the road. What were they thinking indeed...

  9. Honestly, if we had a dime for every time we had to figure out, 'What were they thinking??', we could all retire, couldn't we?? Hey, sometimes people want to go out into the middle of the driveway to make a call, you never know! ha ha ♥

  10. Seriously?!
    I think I would have been making some serious phone calls to the telephone company! (guess they could've called them from out there in the drive!)
    Holy cow, people just don't think!

  11. I would of not been happy.

    Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I really look forward to reading more of your blog!

  12. Gosh, guess I'd go ahead and plant a tree by it...or maybe they wouldn't allow that, might interfere with a wire or something...

  16. That is really strange. It would make me wonder if the person who did it was angry about something or if it was a joke. I think I would feel like you and knock it over!
