(Lexington Herald Leader)   Apparently, road crews are too busy throwing rocks at each other, covering each other with grease, and karate chopping each other in the nuts to actually work on the roads   (kentucky.com) divider line 47

"It was kindly hazardous to work there,"

Well, at least they were kind about it.

These are just standard team-building exercises.

I've never seen them work. In fact, you very seldom see the giant machines left laid around like Tonka toys in motion. My guess is that road work is a giant union-political graft scan and that while road work will hold up traffiic for several months, all the real work can be done in a single day.

They built a whole new highway in my native Province and I never saw anybody working at any point in time for years. It grew several hundred miles without any sign of ground being cleared, road bed being laid, and asphalt being spread.

I'm not even sure roads are made. They just happen. And in Election years they go out and fill the potholes in the places which voted right last time. But that is not road building. It's just cosmetics.

Probably more of a back hand slap on his package than a karate chop, but yeah, a back hand slap on the package will do just what they described happened to him.

Most of the work is done overnight on highways

Sounds like the supervisor needed a giant ass whooping.

And what the fark does "It was kindly hazardous to work there," even farking mean?

It's Kentucky, what do you expect? They will take a whole paragraph to answer a yes/no question.

They're up there slapping each other with the hot mops.  I go up there I fire his ass through the skylight.  My wife goes up there like she knows what she's doin.  I fire her ass off the roof, too.

For whatever reason reading the words karate chopping each other in the nuts has made me giggle like a childish road worker.

It's really no different than hunting or fishing or watching football. Latently homosexual behavior.

When I was I in college, there was a gas station at the end of the street where an elderly man worked.  I don't think the station was very profitable but the owner kept the station open just so this guy would have something to do in retirement.  Friendly, talkative guy.  One morning I was filling up and there was a city road crew across the way.  A backhoe, a dump truck and about 5 guys standing around.  The station gas guy walked up to me, pointed at the road crew and said "Have a look over there.  Those workers are waiting for that tractor to start itself."

SO?! Fark told me yesterday that getting hurt on a road crew was an auto get out of jail, why wouldn't they try to hurt each other?!

/Or are there road crews that are not prisoners ?

I'm wondering what the old guy did, if he thinks working for DOT, and having this kind of thing done to him, violates his right to be free of "cruel and unusual punishment."

You would have to be a complete assclown and a pitiful motherfarker to be jealous roadworkers.

I have NEVER in my life passed by one and thought, "gee, what lucky souls to have such a lovely job". Usually I think the opposite.

Frankly I don't even care if they only work four hours for every eight they bill.

Jealous OF roadworkers, that should say.

And yes, I have seen them work.

I hated when I had to work along side with the street crew, they really do like throwing aggregate rocks at each others groin. Myth Confirmed!

Old (but true) PENNDOT joke:

Q: How many PENNDOT workers does it take to fix a road?
A: Six. One to lean on the shovel and five to stand around and drink coffee.

An old man was sitting on his porch one summer day and watched a DOT worker driving along the road, stop and dig a small hole every 100'.  An hour passes and another worker comes along and is filling in the holes.  The old man couldn't believe what he sees and yells out to the second worker, "Why are you fillin' in those holes for?"  The worker stops and explains, "Today's the day we are putting in the new traffic signs."  "Okay", says the old man, "But where are the signs?"  The reply came back, "Well, Jim is the sign guy, and Jim called in sick."

So ... union workers?

How many state workers does it take to spin a merry go round?

FTA :   In one case, the supervisor and two others spun a worker on a merry-go-round at a park...

Three, apparently.

Why is Subby against stimulus? With every bruised testicle, we're that much closer to ending our economic nightmare.

Little bit of judgement in there subby. How the fark else would you build a road?

Just lean against each other until the truck gets there with shovels.

Definitely right.

According to Fartbama, you wouldn't!
The government is supposed to do that!
Damn commie

Every time I hear about road workers, it's the same thread. Someone pipes in that you see 18 people standing around and only one working. Someone else says he sees them park their machinery on the side of the road and then there's no sign of the construction workers for weeks. They're lazy. They pad their hours. It's all a union scam. And on and on.

And I've never once seen a road worker come in here to defend himself.

So you've got to give them this: At least they're not liars.

That might be the most hysterical thing I have ever read in my entire life.
