The Phone Company was in trouble deep. There were many people, who wanted to get a telephone connection. Alas the purchasing department had spent last winter in hibernation and so the amount of cable available for new connections was somewhat limited. To make matters worse, the country where all the soon to be customers happened to live, featured an impressive collection of wild rivers, magnificent mountains and some streets with hardly any traffic at all (according to the tourist office).
To The Phone Company, which had no sense of geological wonder, this spelled TNT, bridges and tubes. Before getting engaged in somewhat that an independent obeserver could have described as action however, they decided to do what they were best at, which was waiting. Maybe after some months the mountains would disappear. So they waited for several months. Then they decided, what they really need is an expert.
