975 – Holes in the ground

You are walking along, and there are some people working on a large hole in the ground. What do you do? Do you just walk past and not even think about what they are doing? Or walk past and perhaps wonder what they are doing but do nothing about satisfying your curiosity?

I couldn’t do either of those. If there’s a hole in the ground and there are people working on it, I might risk not talking to them – Sod’s Law says the hole will be closed up and the people gone, that’s the risk you take. Not always though, more times than not I will stop and have a chat with them. Always polite of course; “may I ask what you are doing”. It is really unusual for people to tell me to go away.

We were walking over the Wareham causeway, there was a chap in high viz standing over an open manhole cover. We stopped and did the asking. Turns out they were laying fibre optic for fast broadband. Lucky we did stop and ask. Lucky we did as he was gone when we came back about an hour later.

The header picture is a different example. I’m pretty sure I know why they are digging up the road. Getting the street ready for traffic where it has been a pedestrianised area for longer than we have lived in Gosport. Still though, when I’m walking past, I will pause take a look down to see what is going on.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
