The Feeling of Power

I was getting ready for work when I looked out the window and saw the
utility company starting to erect a pole in front of my house. They were
going to position it directly in front of my picture window.

No way, absolutely no way was I going to permit this. I gulped down my
last bit of coffee and went directly to the crew supervisor and told him in
no uncertain terms that I was not going to permit his crew to put that
stupid electrical pole directly in front of my picture window.
He took out a map for pole locations and a right of way document and
explained that it is the best location for it. I told him it is not the
best location for me and when I came home from work that day I did not want
to find that pole in front of my window.

I told him I didn't give a hoot where he put it but not in front of my
window. I felt pretty smug as I drove off to work because I felt I got my
point across. I know darn well they are afraid to put it there now.

Ahhhh..... the feeling of power.........
