How to Take Out Your Electric Pole in 1 Easy Step

Our electric utility pole, slightly broken.
 
 
For those of you who gets angry when you get our electric bill and just feel like tearing down that damn electric pole, I can tell you how to do it in one easy step. Yes, this is from personal experience, not mine, but hubby's!
 
 
The first thing you have to do is have a guy wire that is in the way when you are backing out of your driveway, or shop drive in this case. Be sure it sticks out far enough that you can catch it with the bumper of your car or race car trailer!
 
 
Once you have that guy wire trapped on the bumper, pull forward at a good rate of speed. Just be sure there are not children around to watch as the pole snaps and the electric lines fall to the ground! If you have ever told your wife that she is a bad driver, you probably don't want her around to see this either!
 
 
Now that you have snapped the utility pole and the lines have fallen to the ground, you can call your local electric company and they will "unhappily" come out and replace that old pole. It may take them 5 hours before they come to your house and you may freeze your butt off before they get there, but that is a little price to pay to get your electricity back on before you miss your morning coffee.
 
 
Oh and I forgot to mention that your neighbors will appreciate it too when their electricity goes off as well. Do you have a neighbor that you don't really like? This will also cause them to go with out electricity through most of the cold night. If you really want to piss them off, be sure and do this during one of the coldest nights of the year!
