Under Construction

We are having some landscaping construction done to our office grounds at work and they have barricaded off one side of the building.

Bob's Barricades... who is Bob? Why did he decide to make barricades? How did that conversation go?

"Honey, could you pass the potatos?"

"Yes, dear. Oh, and by the way, I'm quitting my high paying corporate job to open a company that makes nothing but construction barricades."

"You're what!?"

But make barricades Bob does, and every single barricade you see - at least in our part of the US - is a Bob's Barricade so he must be doing something right, and probably making tons of money doing it. Road construction around here is the state passtime, it seems, so I don't imagine Bob runs low on orders.

Now we all just need to go out and find our own "barricades" to make ourselves rich.

Maybe caution tape?

No, looks like that one is taken already, too. Drats. :)

hehe, go Bob! I reckon in our part of the world, the guy that makes metal barrier railings for the roadside would do really well, they are always getting crunched and crumpled by careless drivers going too fast round bends!
