So here’s the scenario, While metal detecting at your local park you look over and notice a new guy swinging his detector in a grassy area. You’ve never seen anyone else metal detecting in your town, much less your local park so your curiosity is piqued. That’s when you notice that he is digging like an armadillo looking for a grub, slinging dirt a foot behind him! You think to yourself, “This would be funny if it wasn’t really happening.”
When you can’t take it anymore you work your way over to the area that the new guy is excavating and kindly ask if he’s finding anything. After talking to your new friend for a short time you learn that he has found a few pennies and that he travelled from another state to metal detect in your parks.
Visitors are always welcome but when you realize that the new guy is digging with a 3 prong hand rake you feel obligated to suggest a better hand digger. After coming to an agreement that a new hand digger would leave less damage to the grass, you part ways and your new friend leaves.
That’s when you realize that the situation is much worse than you initially thought. Upon closer inspection you notice about twenty unfilled holes randomly scattered about. Holes and furrows actually! Unbelievable, but there are unfilled holes, everywhere…
This is the second scenario in the “What Would You Do?” series.
