(The Columbian)   You don't like the color of the fire hydrant in your front yard. Do you A) paint it a different color, B) decide it's probably that color for a reason, or C) threaten to kill a city public works official? (choose two)   ( columbian.com) divider line

BlousyBrown: The one in front of my house is yellow. Is that weird? Seems weird to me.

The colors have to do with the amount of pressure different hydrants have. As a new, micro-managing president of the institution I work for found out to his great cost, the fire department gets very annoyed and litigious when you send your maintenance workers out to paint all those different-colored hydrants a nice uniform shade of brown.

I pick A and B.  Because screw you all, that's why, and fetch me another drink.  And C, because the test is rigged.

I wonder how often this guy gets his ass kicked by people that know him?

So this guy:

1. Didn't know what color the hydrant in his yard needed to be;
2. Didn't know for sure if his gun was loaded or not;
3. Responded to a note from the city "please repaint your hydrant" by getting drunk and threatening the guy who left it.

I mean, I try not to be judgemental, (oh, wait, no I don't) but does this guy sound like a bit of a douchebag and a lot of an idiot to anyone else?

Maybe he shoulda just planted shrubbery all around the hydrant so it disappears.

/Fire truck 12 here: "Where the F*CK is the f*cking damn hydrant on this street!!!"
//Its so much fun when the town removes the shrubbery and the resident screams and makes threats, until they notice the officer in the police car a few doors down watching.

The only  one protecting a  good hydrant from bad paint is a patriot with a gun.

What a dumbass. Painting a fire hydrant can affect its ability to be used in an emergency. It's hard enough to unscrew those suckers.
