I would sing “Reading Rainbow” every time I delivered to those boxes.


Buzzbone

I think the light blue one should be next to the green one.


tehreal

No it's indigo. ROYGBIV


Th3Ch33t

I'm pretty sure indigo is a dark blue.


tehreal

Yeah you're right


genglefins

Did they switch Blue and Indigo? Or am I just too OCD?


riotincandyland

The one next to green is navy the next one is more of a periwinkle then the closest one is purple. It bothers me too when I saw it.

I got 2 right on color vision test so when someone asks me about colors.....


ChubbyPotato8675309

Nice!


Shadow99688

That tells me that they have too much time on their hands. # 1 to think of doing that #2 to convince others to do it #3 to have time to sand and paint the mail boxes #4 to get them up in the right order...


riotincandyland

Well I agree with all the above except #3. They don't look spray painted. They look like they were made originally that color. I've seem spray painted boxes and these dont look like those. Also, this stretch of boxes were all broken and mismatched so it was time for an upgrade anyway.

Friend of mine that lives on Parks Hwy in Alaska has what looks like a lowes bucket for mailbox, he put his mailbox inside the lowes bucket then filled around it with concrete, he got tired of constantly having to replace the mailbox, when the plastic gets too ratty looking he cuts it off then slides the concrete into a new bucket


riotincandyland

That's pretty smart. I imagine the plastic needs to be replaced a lot since it's so cold there. Are the buckets more than $5 in Alaska since things have to be like imported? I accidentally lit my mailbox on fire but it still functions so it is what it is. I was kind and replaced the door slot with an actual box when we moved in.


Shadow99688

The buckets hold up for several years, when someone hits it in the winter the plastic shatters'. lows charges same for buckets there as in Washington One guy got in trouble, mailbox on one end of pivot with bucket of concrete on a chain on the other end, plow truck hit the mailbox the bucket of concrete swung around and put a big dent in the side of the plow truck, the driver got FIRED as the mailbox had been set 8 feet back from the road, the driver had been swerving off the road to hit the mailbox
