Frank Sereno posted photos on Facebook of a slice of birthday cake with a number 3 candle placed inside the pothole.

"I thought what I can I do to have a little fun," Sereno said. "Everyone is always complaining about the potholes, but complaining doesn't seem to be getting anything done. So I said, I want to keep it top of mind. I know my fellow Waldo neighbors are just as disgusted as I am so I said, let's just celebrate it's birthday. It's third birthday."

Sereno's "birthday party" worked, too.

It got the media's attention and Kansas City's Public Works Department fixed the pothole.

To celebrate, Sereno is throwing a graduation party for the former road hazard.
