The other day as I drove up to work I saw that the curb in front of our building had been painted red. How nice that the city is maintaining itself, I thought. As I walked from the car into the building, the true story revealed itself.

I love it. Those are some well framed pictures. I like it so much that I put it on my blog. I hope you don't mind.

I mind a little but not too much.

Glad you like the pics. I was cracking up when I saw the mess. It actually continued into the building, to the carpet in the lobby, into the elevator and onto some of the upper floors. They've since cleaned the building but the mess on the sidewalk will likely be there for years to come.

Well, I tried to source you as the author. Didn't mean to steal.

I think it was the same guy. They all look like the same shoe. If so, what the heck was that dude thinking?

It's cool.

I think the problem was they didn't do a good job of making it obvious that the paint was wet. They only blocked off part of it.
