Men at work

Would you believe that the same idiot, crazy- gang workmen who dug a hole through the gas pipe a few days ago, cutting off the gas supply to two villages, have today dug a hole through the mains water pipe? There was, I am told, a jet of water fifty feet high. This was remedied more speedily than the gas, I am glad to report, and all that remained of the fiasco when I went to inspect after work was a few puddles, no doubt composed primarily of the tears of the workmen, shed for the trouble they caused.
