Okay, I'm all about safety... but this is kind of silly. Utility companies everywhere require their workers to place orange cones around their vehicles when parked. That's great for those big repair trucks... but even workers in minivans and sedans are placing orange cones out in the street when they stop for lunch at Pizza Hut. "Back off, buddy. We're the phone company!" Apparently, the idea is to force service folks to walk around their vehicle before they drive off, but c'mon. How about a little common sense? Apparently there's nothing unlawful about placing cones around your car, so I'm getting a pair for my Buick LeSabre. Watch out, Walmart shoppers.
