When you came and dug up a flowerbed in my front yard in an easement last year to lay some apparently-still-dark fiber, w/o so much as a door hanger's worth of notice and w/o any effort to even minimally remediate the damage, you nicked an irrigation line. Turned part of my yard into a bog as it leaked 77,000 gallons of water into the ground in a month. The thousand-ish bucks it cost to repair the line, fix the lawn and flowerbed and to pay that month's water bill wasn't worth my time to pursue. Then.

My bad, not his...  I didn't even engage him on it or waste any time worrying about it.  I figured it wasn't worth my time.  Easier and cheaper just to write the checks to the lawn guy and the utility company and move on.
