    Ugly things on Main Street!

    This past Monday, while waiting for the parade, I noticed something that DEFINITELY needs some attention, and Tender Loving Care! This being the Christmas Season, you would think that all the red items on Main Street would be in their best looking condition. BUT, while standing by one red item for nearly 15 minutes, I finally noticed the crappy looking condition of this item near Coke Corner, by the curb:



    This hydrant had chipped paint all over. With a new coat of paint, it would not be on the UGLY LIST. But, unfortunately, it's condition is definately being neglected by maintenance and management.

    Wow. I don't think I've ever seen that fire hydrant before! You must have some eye for detail!

    Wow, I agree...how have I not tripped over that in all my times at DL (don't ask how many times I've nearly killed myself on those lights around the waterball in tomorrowland).

    If it's on the curb, my guess is that people sit on it all day (waiting for the parades, fireworks, etc) and no matter how much it's painted, it'll continually look scuffed up.

    Should it be painted, yes. However, you mentioned that you were next to it for 15 minutes before you realized that there was chipped paint. Meaning that most people would not see it at all. That's not to say that it should be left that way.

    Well, like I said, I stood right by it for 15 minutes not noticing it. Not exactly noticing it real quick.

    As for sitting on it. Well, that would be reserved for the topic "How to make ugly things on Main Street even MORE UGLY!"

    Re: Ugly things on Main Street!

    Let's just hope DL repaints the surface of their fire hydrant, so no one gets an infection on their butt or legs from the rust on the hydrant!

    I can imagine someone contemplating sitting on that hydrant: "Oh, my legs and feet are just SO tired after 12 long hours standing in lines all day. Oh, Look! A fire hydrant! THAT looks so comfortable! yeah, there are some park benches that are 10 LONG feet away, I can't possibly make it ALL the way over to those benches. I think I will just sit right here on this fire hydrant, it just looks so much more relaxing!"
