Up High in a Bucket
To be up high in a bucket is not on my "Bucket List." I've got other things I'd rather do.
At the back of our lot is a stand of trees. The trees are on county property. One day this fellow, along with another worker, drove their bucket truck on the six feet of land that separates our property from the county's property.
Then he got into the bucket and was raised up high where he proceeded to "trim" the trees. The problem is that he didn't trim anything that needed trimming. He might have trimmed the tree tops or he might have trimmed branches that were close to some telephone wires, but it appeared to be just random; hit or miss.
On the ground, his partner picked up his trimmings and fed them into a wood chipper.
After about an hour, they packed up and left. Haven't seen them since. So far as I could tell, the trees looked exactly the same when they left as when they came.
