AAAAAAAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:
I saw it just in time, painters outside my building on a huge crane, less than 100 yards from my bike. They put plastic on the nearby cars, but I assume they didn't consider my bike needed any protection. Luckily it was only latex, but my old bike was covered in a fine mist of white paint. I just spent the last 30 minutes cleaning her up... poor baby.
OK... I feel better now, just had to get that off my chest.
I complained to the painting contractors, and to some Duke officials. They also did not have the area cordoned off from students entering and exiting the building, and their crane destroyed a crepe myrtle. WTF were they thinking?
(edit: just went back outside... painters are gone, job half-finished... [deleted])
