The Wrong Way to “Get Rid” of Graffiti

I was a little dismayed to see that recent graffiti at our CVS was “removed” by painting over it (as you can see to the right). This is especially painful since DC will remove this for anyone that signs a graffiti removal waiver. I was also at a bit of a loss that the regional manager for the store at 3642 Georgia I’ve worked with in the past was no longer employed at CVS.

After digging around a bit, I finally found and made contact with the new regional manager … and am happy to report that they agreed with me that the red paint on the New Hampshire Avenue side of the building is unsightly and not the preferred manner to address graffiti. Based on the phone call I had with CVS yesterday, within the next couple of days (fingers crossed) the red blotch on the CVS will be removed.

Of course, now would also be a good time to circle back and see if I can get the bike racks outside the store reset so that they are useful.

    Also, their tree boxes are a disgrace. I’m surprised they don’t work to keep their space appealing.

    Let’s keep the fact that you need a custom paper writing service between us and tell no one Let professors think you’re the writer of all the essays and papers on your own. It’s safer that way and helps avoid any uncomfortable questions.
