I've seen this phenomenon so many times (I guess we all have). Is it at all typical, or is it misleading? The guys with the pick & sledge may have opened up things so that the guy doing something could get to wherever or whatever he wanted. We've all seen the many potholes & other street problems in major cities (for those who have lived in such cities). They seem to stay there for weeks, if not months, with no work done on them. In many cases the street dept. just sends out a crew to ream out the hole, then pour in gravel & asphalt, which only lasts until the next car drives over it. It's extremely rare that the street dept. actually puts real paving, much less concrete into the holes. The cities almost always say they don't have enough tax money to keep the streets in good repair. Perhaps if they didn't piss the money off by half assed repairs which have to be repeated ad nauseum, & stopped with the graft they'd have enough money.
