Paint the depressing-as-hell gates at the East Falls Church Station?
Why are Metro workers seldom seen in groups of less than three?
East Falls Church has been getting a painting makeover. Honestly, I'd never noticed that the old paint looked bad, but for whatever it's worth, they're painting over everything: lamp poles, staircase handrails, the bus shelter, and even these hideous gates.
They've been at it for the past several days. When I walked by on Tuesday morning, they were talking for the most part, not painting.
Sure enough, in the evening when I came home, they appeared to have only done half.
On Wednesday, they were back it it with the light posts. They even painted over the lighting hoods on the staircase that either don't work or have long since been smashed and never repaired.
With some motivated people, everything in that station that "needed" painting in Metro brown could have been done in one day, maybe a day and a half.
