NOT ALL THE INMATES AT THE LOCAL JAIL ARE DUMMIES THAT DONT HAVE A JOB. THINK BEFORE YOU JUDGE OTHERS!!!! AND I AM A FLAGGER AND THERE IS ALOT MORE TO THE JOB THAN JUST TURNING A SIGN. MAYBE YOU SHOULD SPEND A 14 HOUR DAY STANDING ON HOT ASPHALT FLAGGING UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE, WHO DONT UNDERSTAND WE ARE THERE FOR YOUR SAFETY AS WELL AS THE WORKERS WHO ARE MAKING THE ROADS BETTER FOR YOU.
I'm still with/for the flaggers!! Never judge a person(man or woman), until you've stood in their boots/shoes for 12-14 hours!!!

Your right,theres talking on your phone texting your friends and your girl friends/wife..Are you for real with that statement.....YOU stand there watch cars, when your buddy calls you on the radio u TURN a sign wave a flag and thats it..lets be for real the jobs not that hard...and don't comment and say you stand there for 12-14 hours cause iv'e yet to see that in greencastle,maybe if they did work 12-14 hours the street would be done..i agree its a sucky job and people are idiots
but if your doing work or work for the state you get paid well enough to deal with it... SUCK it Up.

Another idiot that dont know what they are talking about. Not every flagging job is in GREENCASTLE. And there is more to the job than what you stated. We are the most important people on the job and get the least amount of respect. And yes we get paid well and no no amount of money is worth losing your life to senseless people that cant comprehend the fact that if you have an appointment and know there is construction on your way to it, then take another route. So the motorist are the one who should SUCK IT UP

The poor flaggers are the ones who end up taking the brunt of abuse, when the real culprits are the municipal planners and engineers, who plan these jobs horribly. Lets use Greencastle as an example:
They not only have had the entire main street through town blocked off, but at the same time have had the secondary side streets blocked off also, thus there is absolutely no way to bypass the construction areas. Many of these jobs could also be scheduled for nighttime hours when traffic is at its minimum. I pity the poor flaggers for the abuse they must endure, but I scorn the planners of these projects for there poor planning.
Exactly!!

Direct your wrath and righteous indignation at those truly and actually responsible, not the people put there to sponge up public outrage (whose only function, really, is to keep you and everyone else that may be eager and impatient to be someplace safe by ensuring heavy duty equipment doesnt connect with vehicles...or worse!).

You're all intelligent individuals with a deep understanding of all the political agendas or incompetence behind these projects, so ascribe blame where it belongs rather than kicking the dog for the masters error &#128514;
