Yes, we all get mad at out cable TV or internet now and then. No, you should never take your anger out on the cable guy. He’s really there to help, trust me. Well, cable gal in this case.

The cable woman was working on one of the cable lines in her truck. Well, she was in the lift bucket of her truck, working on the overhead lines. There was some sort of a dispute, and rather than move on with her day, the angry woman trapped the worker. The woman didn’t block the repair woman with her car or hold her at gunpoint or anything like that. She went into the cable company’s truck and shut it off. Remember, she was up in the air still at this point. Police haven’t said what caused the dispute, but I can imagine the woman probably was a little angry in general and decided to take it all out then and there.

Well, it didn’t work out so well for her. She was caught, and was slapped with a couple different charges. She got harassment, false imprisonment, disorderly conduct, and criminal trespassing charges. Remember, the cable truck is cable company property, and she wasn’t invited to be there. Imagine if she were to cut one of the hydraulic lines or something causing the lift to plummet down. Scary. See some more info on the story here. And always remember, the cable guys and gals out there are working to get your service restored. They’re the good guys.
