Maybe they had bad news regarding a family member. Or you worked them so hard they had no energy left. LOL. I would definitely ask them what the deal is though.

I'd fire them, then beat them, and then fire them again.

I haven't been swamped, but have been staying pretty busy, which is a bit unusual for me in the winter months. Nothing high-end for a while, but I can't complain.

I leave cut pots like that all the time. It makes it easy to peel when the paint dries out. Promote them.

Pictures a little grainy. What's wrong with the cuttin pot? Looks like a 5er to me which would be wierd for cutting in.

That was my thought too. Figured it was just the camera angle.

I would never beat a employee. You should just communicate with them if you have a problem with someone

I use paint cans for our cut buckets. So, not real familiar with washing out cut buckets. And by the time they got to the shop, probably easier to let them dry the rest of the way.
