Cement Masons vs Iowa Pranksters
I live in an apartment building that has seen a lot of work around the area over the last year. From the roads, the buildings, and now the sidewalks. With new sidewalks comes wet cement.
The building I live in has a lot of families which means a lot of kids are seeing this as an irresistible opportunity to do some artwork, and really show off their drawing skills. Honestly, I was surprised there wasn't more!
Some Of The Art
I think this brings up a good question, is wet cement ever safe from at least one person or animal messing with it? This is something we've all done as kids, but I do feel bad for the cement guys when they come back and have to fix it. The cement is dry now, and surprisingly only a few of the kid's and prankster adult's drawings made it into the final product.
The Masons Won
While a drawing and handprint made it into the final product, the cement workers did manage to get to the project and clear off the drawing of let's just say inappropriate drawings and swear words before it could dry.
So now it's just a few handprints and a random drawing, but a few people in the area are now complaining about it. Personally, all I care about is writing an article about it, but it does make me feel bad that something so little can cause such anger, I also feel bad for the hard-working men and women who have to deal with fixing this. They have so much work to do that they can't be everywhere at once, it's a lose-lose situation.
In the end, I see both sides, on one hand, it's just kids being kids, on the other they are causing a bit of a headache for people. I do have to say the more curd drawings aren't cool... What do you think?
