Dear City Street Departments of America:
It's been a rough winter and we have potholes everywhere.
You are not doing anyone favors by sending three guys and one shovel out in a truck to dump gravel in the potholes.
You are not doing anyone favors by sending three guys and one shovel out in a truck to slop loose asphalt in the potholes.
See, cars drive into this stuff right after your several-hundred-$$-an-hour crew leaves, and they spread your indifferent deposits all over the place.
All we end up with is rocks in the streets and the same old potholes.
Then you have to send a street sweeper out to collect up all the rocks.
And then you (and by "you" I mean "we") have to pay three guys to mess the streets up all over again.
Your work never ends.
Oh, never mind. I get it.
