Since then, any job where I don't have to see another painter's wiener, is a good job.
Left knee,right knee and wee-knee!

I hear from a fellow hanger he's a REAL great customer. Gracious and generous. Nice to hear some super stars are such.

I have to say our last job was the best this past year, home owners offering to make us breakfast,lunch and diner, this was the 2nd time there painting and they have more for us. Not only did they offer us food they were the nicest funniest customers we have ever had, got to love elderly people. They are having us paint couple rooms at a time.

My favorite jobs have been for one particular woman we painter her old mansion. Also wallpapered and painted the inside. Over the years she has treated us very well. Coffee and snack are always there waiting. Tea in the afternoon and plenty of social times. She is one of my favorite people. This was when I worked for someone else. I hope to make her a customer of mine some day.

Yeah, what I was thinking. Love when your employees start their own biz and then try to steal your best clients. Of course once they do that they'll need to steal your best employees to help do the work.
