Yup. Got all nice and humid today, when I was about to spray advance.... Broke down and bought a dehumidifier, and used a 309 tip, and it layed down great and dried without sagging once.

Yes, that is a sad story but perhaps they will rebuild. I am really happy that no people were injured! Everything else is replaceable.

I hate working for a contractor who knows nothing about painting.Some doosh who looks at a half dry wall and says it looks like crap.I actually have to tell him; "it's not dry yet look at it later" and he goes on staring at it then says something asinine like "I hope it does." No genius it's going to stay that way.

when a "painter" brings back a gallon of paint and says it has "junk in it". Why? I sell hundreds of gallons of that particular product every year and have NEVER had anyone tell me it has "junk" in it, and it's pretty damn easy for me to find out if it has "junk" in it. I've been doing this longer than this particular "painter" has graced this earth. So take your return,Go back to the behr rock you crawled out from under, and don't bother coming back.

It's kind of like having people claim your paint job is crap so they can either not pay you or hit you up for a discount, only that after they do that they go back to using "Student painters".

I hate when…

...you spend five hours in a meeting with a self entitled DC’er going over details repeatedly, after...

...finding out on the way to the meeting that your favorite GC has passed away. He was only 51 and had just returned to work, literally his first day back, after a six week medical absence. He was taking care of himself and bam, gone. I’m devastated. He was literally the ‘nicest person you’ve ever met’ type of guy...

....after the tv dying the night before you get the news of your friend...

....after spending all day in court with a crazy ex gf over stalking/ harrsssment/ assault charges

....on top of my favorite paint store burning down

@PACman, when I worked at the Richland Mall for a sports gift shop there, it was not uncommon for someone to buy a fitted Yankees ball cap, a Yankees jersey, and Yankees shorts/pants paying $150 for the ensemble, only to return them after the weekend parties were over telling me, "None of it fits" or "They have dirt and stains on them." Of course, I had to take them back and give the refund, although sometimes I would be so pissed at the obvious scam that I wouldn't return their money. Sure don't miss retail.......

The local hardware store i worked at before opening my store, (you may be familiar with Home Hardware in Ashland) had people buy outdoor furniture in April and try to return it in September. Of course being a privately owned business they would tell people to stuff it! (one of the things they would do is pull out the state law that says returned items have to be in their original packaging and be in sell-able condition.)

I hate when the stud finder finds nothing behind the wall where an unsightly big crack resides.

I hate moving low quality TV stands and desks etc., sometimes things just fall apart. Also, big heavy-duty bed frames with nearly a dozen support legs --can't move an inch without taking things off & apart.

I hate when finding myself hating something --usually because of being impatient. The mind wants a clear and straight path, and tends to get upset when obstacles are thrown in its way..

I used Behrmarquee semigloss on woodwork recently for the first time. Still the same old dragging and stickiness to some degree. Moving at the DIY's speed is okay, but one can't move fast with that paint

My brother had one of those cheap walmart mdf TV stands once. We used that TV for playing PS2. Over a period of twenty years or so it just slowly kept leaning to one side until eventually the TV was sitting on the two boards laying flat on the floor. Never crashed down or broke, just slowly succumbed to gravity. (OOPS! should be "lack of centripetal force!"). One day i showed up for our weekly Madden games and my brother said "well, time to get a new TV stand i guess. And that was that. (things get kind of slow in ole Olivesburg on the weekends.)
