I’ve been walking past this strange little stump of a pole for months. City crews ripped open this patch of sidewalk during the summer and when they paved it over, they left behind this metal stump with a piece of copper wire around it. Whatever it’s purpose, they seem to have forgotten about it. Autumn is already here and still no sign of anything happening with this stump. It just so happens to be located at a bus stop so I wouldn’t be surprised if someone has already tripped over it in the dark. Every time I see it, I think to myself, what the !@#*?

    If I recall correctly, there was a bench there too, for a while. Once the bench was taken away, voilĂ  Stumpy!

    That little pipe will be a nightmare come snowfall when the snow will be just at the right hight to hide it ever so neatly. And I can picture those sidewalk snowplows stopping dead in their tracks when they hit it.
