Why, yes! Invite them in for a cup of tea. Just don't forget the hemlock.

I still haven't fully recovered from my run-in with the right-of-way maintenance guys from our local power company almost a year ago. They are supposed to be able to clear back twelve feet or so from directly under the power lines. They drove their machinery at least forty feet onto my property, smashed or cut down my wife's privet bushes and did diddle-dee-shit about cleaning up after themselves. Then they came to the back side of the property, which is where our power line actually comes in, and commenced using chainsaws to clear a path through some of my most productive blueberry bushes. They stopped when a very angry Bee-dubya screamed at one of them which almost prompted a physical altercation.

Every time I drive by one of their pieces of equipment on the roadside I get an urge to monkeywrench it.
