‘The Ditch’ By David Carroll

Gary’s got a job working for county maintenance. He’s required to dig a lengthy ditch the old-fashioned way, by hand. Along with another employee of the county, they dig until they’re unexpectantly distracted. The Ditch presents a moral litmus test for anyone questioning man’s integrity.
