“Mommy was on her Blackberry” !

"Mommy was on her cell phone" !
When I came across this picture I just had to add my two cents. This portrait of little children “getting into the latex goes on everyday across the nation and around the world. Sure their “having a blast”, from the looks on their faces!” But one has to ask themselves, ” where was the adult supervision? And also who in their right mind would leave an open can of paint around youngsters? Not only is the room “trashed” what about the thought of the kids ingesting the harmful product? No doubt the furniture and floor will never be the same and mom and dad have their work cut out for them cleaning this mess up!
The bottom line for this caption is “Kids and paint don’t mix” !

“Honey I just fired the painters”

Honey I just Fired the Painters!

Honey I just Fired the Painters!

So you saw a home made paint contractors sign down at the end of the block and decided to call. The job that they were doing on the exterior of the house looked good from a distance. There were drop cloths not all canvas but bed spreads as well along with some old wood ladders and some twisted metal steps. Their vehicle parked in front of the house looked like it should have been retired long ago. Without actually going up to see the job at close range, or researching their references you gave them a shot as well as a third down.

On the first day they set up the ladders carelessly against the gutters leaving a few dings and dents in them. Not to mention stepping on the tulips you just planted. The painters return after a lengthy lunch break to start scraping with the paint chips decoratively filling your garden bed. Now its time to power wash with a garden hose on the front porch roof where the owner slips and falls on the wet shingles.

Later that evening you receive several phone calls from neighbors asking you what all the commotion is at your house. The paint crew arrives for a second day and starts to paint the house with oil base instead of latex as agreed upon, not to mention that the color is way off. After mentioning this to the contractor he agrees and begins to clean his oil brushes with water.

As the contractor heads out to the paint store he leaves the rest of the crew to paint the shutters while they are still attached to the house. “Honey I just fired the painters”.
