Obviously, you have never been privvy to the inner workings of CalTrans . . . .
And sergeants have been known to give helpful digging tips. They mostly concern useful hints about the digger's ancestry and/or species, said digger's future status in the armed forces, and what else the digger might do with the shovel. All in caring tones and in the spirit of bonhommie
