Create sticky situation
Some engineers from the U.S. Geological Survey were checking property lines when they discovered an area where the New Hampshire and Maine border had been drawn incorrectly many years before and would have to be changed.
They stopped to inform a farmer he was no longer in Maine, but instead his farm was in New Hampshire.
After a long pause, he grunted and said, “That’s good. I couldn’t take another one of these Maine winters.”
