There's a first time for everything

There are certain things I never see happen that I'm always surprised I don't see. Like the changing over of a billboard. Or the emptying of an ATM. Or the emptying of the big blue mailboxes. Or the emptying/changing of a Redbox (okay, these haven't been around very long, but I still don't know how they get changed). I used to think that there must be underground tunnels that change them out.

Well, today I saw an ATM being emptied out or changed and a mailbox being emptied. So now I can check those things off my imaginary list!

I've never seen any of those things done either. I always wonder why you never seeing graffiti in progress or 1/2 finished. Granted, graffiti "artists" work late at night, but when I was in my 20s I drove around late at night after going to clubs and I never saw it happening. Sometimes it is in such blatantly obviously places, that you would think that either cops would catch them in the act or a passing motorists would call it in, in which case the graffiti would only be 1/2 complete bc the criminal either ran away or was apprehended mid-graffiti. It just seems to appear out of nowhere, and it is always complete, like the criminal had all the time in the world to work uninterrupted. Strange.

I can help you out if you really want to see a billboard being changed. Andrew works for the billboard company in Peoria and could hook you up with an approximate schedule.
I've seen a billboard being changed, but never the ATM being emptied. I'm a tad jealous, AND a mailbox being emptied. You have all the luck. :)
