crack and cable housing.

i came home and looked out my window across the alley courtyard to see a very large man standing on a ladder leaning on the phone cables...i called my neighbour who's in the building across from me and asked her if she knew of any cable work being done. there seems to be a cable guy there Alot. she doesn't know of any and says "hang on a sec", and a minute later i hear her yelling out the window to find out what he's up to.
rogers guy.
she comes back and says i needn't worry. she then explains that the frequency with which the cable guy is called for has to do with the cable housing stuff. because it's hollow the crack heads clip the cable so they can use the housing for pipes.
