I got to the top and watched the white-hats walk back to the wet spot. All three dug around with their toes trying to figure out what kind of fluid was leaking from the truck. Finally one guy picked some up, they all smelled it, etc. Big discussion, pretty soon all three of them were picking it up.

After an appropriate time I shouted down from the pole to tell them what it was. Lots of laughs all around and a great story for all four of us. I'm retired now but the incident was a legend for years
