Cleaning Up

an experience of city and town

I got sick of the Australia post boxes being covered with graffiti. So I bought some stuff (smells awful) and got to work. It was successful. One day someone got in a huff and demanded to know what I was doing - they thought I was putting graffiti ON, not taking it off. Funny thing was it took quite few minutes to convince him. Now I have a board that says 'volunteer graffiti cleaner' please don't abuse. Helping keep AusPost in good nick seems to me to be a very Aussie thing to do.
