for want of a hard hat
November 3, 2010
They are tearing up the street / sidewalk in front of my workplace. Huge gaping holes in the ground that get covered by steel plates at night go up and down the street. For the last few days they have been focused on the section right in front of our building.
Construction is good. It leads to jobs. Jobs are good in this economy. And besides the guys working the site are actually pretty nice. They stop traffic so I can cross the street and get to and from work. Which is all well and good but I’m not really cool with the fact that every single one of them have hard hats and I don’t get one.
I think I should have a hard hat to keep me safe getting to and from work. Don’t you?
