Setting Expectations

A Taped Warning on a Television Set

January 24, 2015

A crew started chiseling below my bedroom early this morning. My downstairs neighbors had decided now to make flat and of concrete what has long been patchy and of asphalt. They were making their liability a legitimate sidewalk.

Trash that's been sitting outside my building was used to set up the perimeter around the work zone while wet concrete set. This clunky old television marked one corner. A mattress marked the other. Wrapped around and strung between both was yellow caution tape, indicating danger.

No one takes the warnings on TV seriously. I don't expect this to be noticed at all.
