Supervisor Hit the Pole

Today in the Word, December 2, 1995, p. 7

Three months after moving to his farm in Greenville, South Carolina, Bob Olson realized he had a serious problem. A utility pole on the corner of his driveway was in a bad location&md;so bad that four visitors had hit it with their cars.

Bob called the power company and reported the hazard. Eventually they sent a supervisor to evaluate the situation. After looking it over, the supervisor concluded there was no problem. But as he drove away, a loud thud was heard which shook the entire house. The supervisor had hit the pole&md;and the next day a crew arrived to move it!
