You forgot something
Even if they somehow managed to forget this shovel while pouring the fresh cement on the road, didn’t they notice the mistake before they called it a day and took off? They couldn’t have missed it; they probably realized it was there too late and were too lazy to fix it. I’m sorry, but we call it like it is. We can’t even find a way to sugar coat this one.
We can already hear all the Chuck Norris jokes this mistake will encourage: Chuck Norris stepped on this shovel, Chuck Norris sat there, and so on and so forth. If taking this shovel out is too much work, why not cover it with more cement? It seems like anything would be better than this.
