Our neighborhood lost phone service when the pedestal at the end of the
road was annihilated by a flail mower....a WEEK AGO.  The repair - orange
plastic bag over the entrails of the pedestal.

Yay Verizon - I finally understand why I send them so much money - stylish
orange bags!

For a while we have had a customer with some lines which go down every
time it rains.   We put in the trouble ticket, a couple of days later
Verizon says the issue is resolved...until the next time it rains.

The customer sent us some pictures today of the pole outside their office.
  The repair appears to be wrapping some plastic bags around something up
on the pole.  Here is link to the pictures the customer sent us, in case
anyone in the mood for a good scare.
