I Want One Of Those "Jobs"!

At last the giant drill rig had rounded the corner off of 135th Street and proceeded to bore its row of holes south along 14th Ave. Here we're across the avenue from my house as the drill bit slowly augers its way through the coral rock, leaving a deep hole nearly two meters across.

What fascinates me is the number of people on these jobs who do absolutley nothing. When Asplundh, the tree trimming contractor came through a few weeks ago the "watchers" outnumbered the "workers" at least three to one. Here we got a bunch of guys milling around behind the truck, another bunch next to the truck, plus the guy operating the crane and drill.
