Tree Inspection Time

Julius Ceasar once wrote: "Veni Vidi Vici" (I came, I saw, I conquered). Today the Joburg City Parks department came, and they saw. Then the workers lay around on the (uncut) grass during lunch hour.
The supervisor told me they didn't have any petrol to run the chain saws, but promised to be back "tomorrow". When I asked why they showed up without any petrol, he explained they had been doing another job earlier. I guess two trees in one day is a bit much for a council worker. Then they drove off in MWC781GP. Obviously it had enough petrol to get back to the office.
I guess they couldn't come last month because they were attending a special municipal ceremony (see "City Parks thanks hard-working staff") on 24th October.
