How Many Safety Experts Does It Take To Change A Lightbulb?

Oh god, here comes the UK again. I…I have no words.

A street lamp’s bulb goes out. Council comes to assess, and says climbing a ladder to change the bulb would be too unsafe because it’s too close to power lines and trees. So, for 3 years, the residents have had no light at night. Now, they will have bulbs again, but only after workers move the poles some so it won’t be so dangerous to change the bulb.

So, let me get this straight. Workers who are probably intelligent enough to know how to use a ladder near hydro lines and trees could not be trusted to do it, but citizens’ safety is not considered at all? They can live in the dark for 3 years at night? Seniors can feel unsafe coming home from evening meetings, and that’s just fine?

My brain, it can’t handle this level of stupidity.
