When it's the end of day and you only have enough paint to cover 50sf and you need to cover 100sf

Made worse if the job is out in the country about 15 miles (at least) from the nearest store where you can get what you need. Had that happen a few weeks ago.

So what do all these scenarios have in common? Cheap painters who don't purchase enough supplies, and keep poor inventory in their work vehicles.

Where's that jester Smiley? :-P

I forgot sleeves for a job not long ago. If you get other crap on your mind or try to do too many things at once, something falls out the back of your brain - that day it was the sleeves.

That's why I've learned to ALWAYS call my friendly local supplier and ask them what I need to do a job. Easier than thinking through myself.

well people would not think it me if I did not say something along these lines:

I hate it when I'm on antibiotics on a job and they "disrupt" my output.

Similar. I love it when I walk out to the truck to get something, and forget what the heck it was when I get there. I call it "destinesia"

When you load and secure all of the ladders on the van after the final walk-around and then notice that one little spot that needs to be touched up at the tip of the 2nd story gable.

Or notice your caulk gun hanging from the gutter, just where you left it.

Paul,

I now have in my tool belt a piece of white kitchen laminate about the size of a credit card. Not only do I use it for writing down measurements, but also what I need from the van. Pencil wipes cleanly off it with a damp rag (or spittle). It's my 10 byte RAM

Bill, I'm now the king of lists. I always have about 2-3 index cards in my shirt pocket to jot down notes. But still.....

I have one of those notepads suctioned to my windshield. I'm always taking notes.
When you are up on an extension and you're sanding something and the paper falls out of your hand, check your back pocket and notice its the last piece.

When I'm spraying a strip mall and get a bunch of cars full of oil overspray and call my insurance company and they tell me I'm not covered for it.

For me and interior work it's small peices of blue tape indicating the areas that need touch-up near the end of the job.They usually work great - but I don't use them in jobs where there are little kids around.

Or when you forget you left it on the ladder you're now taking down, and it almost takes you down!
