A few weeks ago, on the same day I ran out of electrical tape and teflon tape. Two items I never think about as there is always some....somewhere. Randomly buy them bulk here and there, always some at the bottom of the tool bag or under the truck seat or SOMETHING.....nope.

Made a mad trip to the store.

... when my sprayer craps out before the job is complete.

..... when a gun keeps spitting.

....... when a tip clogs exactly when I start spraying doors.

......... when a tip is continually clogging and I'm out of gun filters.

not the tip of a 2nd story gable, it was on the corner where it meets the eaves / soffit - noticed as I was pulling out of the drive

When I am racing down the freeway to be at the job before 8am and in the back of my mind I'm thinking I have forgot something and I can smell something burning, I look down and my shoes are burning, and I realize I forgot my car!!!!!!!!

Most my jobs are at least 15 minutes from the paint store and I live approx 30 mintes from the closest store. Not complaining though. I love my country living life style The gas part kinda sucks though

Bill and I can attest to the fact that forgetting happens less and less the older you get.
Or is it remembering...? I forget.

Getting to a jobsite that is in a remote residential area and remembering you forgot to get gas. Its like you guys going to a job without paint brushes.

hey painters forget gas for their rigs too what sucks more is when your rig is on your truck, your all rolled out and and loaded with paint, you realize you don't have gas as your rig is spitting fumes.
