For larger holes, call PG&E

Below is what happens when PG&E (our power and gas monopoly in California) decides to dig a one meter deep by half meter wide L-shaped trench in the street, then cover it with metal plates, then come back two weeks later. What started as a small trench which they needed to dig for some unknown reason and then desert turned in to this massive hole when one of these metal plates worked loose a little bit and then cars and buses kept passing over it. Thankfully someone from the city noticed it and called these doofuses to fix it. Had they not, there would have definitely been a car, bumper down in the trench or even better, an Academy of Art bus in the same position full of fragile little artsy princes and princesses urinating all over themselves and then “arting” about it later. I would have actually have paid to have seen that–the crash in to the trench, not the “arting”.
As it was, PG&E did a cut-rate blacktop job over it that will probably stay that way for six months or so until the next rainstorm comes in and washes it away.
