Backup

Not the computer kind. The traffic kind.

I waited in backed up traffic for no less than twenty-five minutes at the north end of Deschutes Market Road, near the railroad crossing. And after all that time, when we passed by the crossing (that was supposedly being repaved)...

The workers were perched on and sitting around the barrier supports, chatting and laughing.

How much do these guys get paid? Cuz... well... I can do that too. Where do I sign up?

So this doesn't just happen here in California! I always thought it was just Caltrans that got to block off roads to have their own personal Gatorade and chatfest parties!

You sign up at the local union hall, but you may not qualify, as you have to fail an intelligence test first.
