I don't know what it is about our maintenance department. But they just love digging holes and leaving them.

Working in a prison, doesn't that seem a little counterproductive to you?

You watch any prison escape movie and they almost always get out by using a tunnel. Sure, sometimes they use disguises or crash the gates or go over the wall..... but when you think of someone escaping from prison, you think of someone tunneling out.

And here these guys are digging holes all over the camp. And it's not even really the maintenance staff that is actually digging! It's their inmate workers!

They will have a plumbing problem or something, so they will dig a hole where they think the problem might be. Then rather than fix the problem and fill the hole back in, they will just string some yellow caution tape around the big a** pile of dirt and the hole and leave it for a month or two.

Does this seem like a good idea to you?

Maybe it's just me. Apparently I have issues.

Maybe the maintenance guys are taking bets on whose hole will turn into a starter kit for an escape tunnel. It wouldn't surprise me at all.

And boy, won't that make us look like freaking geniuses when it hits the papers.

Ohhhhh yeah.
