Yeah, he must not have been a bright one. Or maybe a side hustler. Being in the biz we got a mailbox full of locates every morning. We were registered, of course, but that only meant a roughly defined geographic area. So, many of the locates didn't apply to us. They carried a description like "property owner wants to put in a fence". Well, that could affect our main distribution cable or a simple drop to a house. Our call. There were no people from the locating service that did the work. Each utility did it on their own but I recognize that in other areas the utilities pay into the service to have them do the leg work.
