Re: Verizon's New Repair Method: Plastic Garbage Bags

To be fair, this sort of thing does happen from time to time in
perfectly legitimate situations. In some cases, parts need to be
acquired or maintenance schedules need to be arranged in order to do a
propper repair. So just because you see these, don't immediately think
it is bad techs rather than a temporary, "keep it working until you
can do it right."

That said, I've seen more jury-rigging in my time than I care to think
about. Nothing like a temporary fix that is still in place five years

Can we all just agree that the whole pole needs to be restrung?

What? That's totally legit. Look! There's even bubble wrap there for

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.
