I ended up wearing the electrifying shirt to work the following day. When Jordanís wife saw the shirt, she blurted out ďThatís it!....Thatís the color!Ē

Jordan and his wife ended up dragging me from room to room making me stand against different walls in different lighting conditions, using me and my shirt as a human color sample for all the drywall walls. His wife broke out a pair of scissors cutting a huge piece of my shirt off which we had color matched in flat oil SaniFlat which I ended up using on all the drywall throughout their entire home. It was a close runner up to being the worst color Iíd ever done, aside from the flamingo pink exterior that had the stop work order placed on it by the local building department.
So did you work the rest of the day with a hole in your shirt. Or did you just turn it into a bandana and go shirtless.?
