Lovely anecdote from Tim Nulty that hit my inbox last week:
One of our potential subscribers who needs the drop to be underground but doesn't want to pay the big extra cost called to say that he had buried a garden hose in the right place and could we put the drop through it?
I said I'd ask my engineers.
They said: "We can if we can get a pull-wire through it".
I told this to the subscriber--who called back an hour later to say: "I've got the pull-wire in place."
My engineers' reply: "Cool. We'll do it then. First time for everything."
It is dead simple. JFDI.
