When I was married and saw a hottie, I instructed the wife to say she was my sister if the woman spoke to me.

To be fair to me, that was for joke purposes. Did have a step-brother who claimed to do that with his ex-wife. Maybe. Maybe not. I took the joke and raised it as my own though after they split up.

Every damn time i have to shake a can of SW, the damn can leaks out the frickin' bottom. Every damn time! Doesn't matter if the can is 3 years old or brand frickin' new! If they can't even put money into a f*cking can that won't rust......WTF?

To have it happen so often that i actually notice it is making me believe that ARE pulling something! The P&L cans are almost as bad. About half of them leak. Honestly the SW corporate cans are the cheapest, thinnest cans they can buy. I know, i bought 10's of thousands of them. Take a label off and if you see ridges running around the can you know it's a cheap ass can. Cans with those ridges are so weak they will crush in a bouncer if you only put one can in. The only ones that will do that. The "liner" inside the SW cans is about 1/3 the thickness of most other cans. They are so big and use so many cans they dictate to the can manufacturers the specifications of the cans they use. If they can save even 1 cent per can it is a big profit for them every year.

I don't blame them for doing it because it makes business sense. It just pisses me off that i have to clean my shaker every damn time i shake one!

Just out of curiosity, why are you shaking SW cans? I always thought you only dealt with stuff you'd sold from your store?

benchmark samples. And color samples for matching. Lots of people use it and want to switch to something decent after they find out how ****ty it is.

...when employees have grossly inefficient technique. I once hired a guy with several years experience painting. He was a good painter but would not move a roller tray/bucket when working. He would just keep walking back to the paint everytime he needed to load his roller. Well eventually he would move it, but not until he got about 15 feet away from it. Kept having to remind him to "put wheels on that tray". Old habits die hard! Just one of many examples of bad form i've seen over the years.

i hate when the property maintenance guy comes in and says "where's your sign?". The sign on my marquee is gone! It was either blown away by the wind this past weekend or some one really wanted a Pratt & Lambert logo! Either way it comes right out of my pocket!

Frank: "I see you have a 1930's Dutch Boy White Lead paint can here too. I collect oil cans, that kind of ties in with those. How about $150 for the can and P&L sign".

He's not getting me with that bundle crap! I'm standing firm @ $200!

Customer goes to SW over the weekend a few weeks ago, finds the "perfect" color, gets a sample quart made, paints it on her wall, likes it, has me match the SW color chip, buys 4 gallons.......and it doesn't come close to what the SW sample is she painted on her wall. I have her bring the almost empty SW sample quart in.....i bet you can guess the rest. It doesn't match their color chip worth a f*ck! So am i supposed to give her four more gallons to repaint? Wtf? If she had told me she was wanting to match a wet sample i would have had her bring it to me. But she never told me anything about it until after i matched the color chip!

@PACman tell her to take it up with SW! She was an idiot! Did she not check the chip to the wall she painted? Also, if she wanted a match to the wall, that is the sample she should have brought in for matching! I loath stupid people!!
