When an old masonry building needs some new network cable pulled, this pilot fish gets the task -- and he figures there's just one problem.
"Drilling those walls was loud," says fish. "I carefully measured and marked to clear the ornate trim on both sides of the door. I waited until after hours and put my hammer drill to the office wall.
"B-r-r-u-p-tttt, not a tough job, and soon I was ready to go home. Pulling the cable could wait. But I peered inside the office to check my hole -- and I had snagged 47 wires of a 50-pair telephone cable!"
It seems the cable has been neatly stapled to the door trim and painted over. And now nearly all the 20 phones in the building are dead.
