I used my mom's garage to set up a "spray booth" when I did some cabinets in her neighborhood. I put the UNOPENED can down next to the garage door and got in her car to pull it out of the garage. As the front of the car was leaving the garage, I saw a cream wave go up in front of the front passenger fender. I backed the car into the garage and walked around front to see what it was - of course, we all know now. So I got 1/4 gal. out of the crushed can, another 1/4 gal. off the driveway (strained a couple of times), but the other 1/2 gal. (waterborne) had to go down the storm drain. Then I had to clean up the tire, wheel cover and garage floor as well.

Painting on the Vineyard many years ago ....stop me if I've told this one before ...... I had to paint a bulkhead at night when the wind was blowing the dew and fog away (mid-october) . Truck lights were the only illumination. As I stepped backward off the bulkhead, my foot started feelin AWFULLY wet.

Yup, foot went right in the can without touching the rim. Good thing is, this can did NOT tip over.

One time I picked up a gallon of latex from a local paint store and set it on the front seat of my truck. Took it out and had a puddle sitting there. Wondering WTH?!? I look on the bottom of the can and the guy at the paint store had taken a piece of masking tape to cover a hole. Had a nice little chat with him about it and got a new factory seat cover installed. We laugh about it now.
Did a whip break or the actual hose? I had a whip break on me one time, and i had the displeasure of having red mahogany stain in one of my eyes, my face, the poor bastard next to me, and the ceiling. what a mess.

No WONDER no one ever posts pictures.

To my knowledge Ewing has never crossed anyone, and you guys are still just WORKING him.

I think there must be something weird about that picture, because I checked out PGA Norman estates and it is on "par" with the nicest communities I have seen.

Good thing for Ewing, or he would NEVER live it down!

The hose actually split about 1/2". First and only time that has ever happened.

I agree. All the houses have chainlink fences? Maybe that is where the gated part comes in.

One of my first jobs when I was out on my own was an entire interior repaint. Had just hired a new guy the day before. He was in one bedroom, actually a home gym, and I was in another. After helping him set up I left him on a ladder and started trimming out the master bedroom. Not two minutes later I heard a loud thud and heard several choice words. When I got to him he was still on the ladder and a full gallon of paint was emptying itself on to the area rug. Needless to say he didn't show up ever again, gotta love self firing employees!

About 92 or so I had a partner and we were painting a roof on an IHOP...for some reason we couldnt spray it, so we were brushing and rolling it. We had ladders set up and had two friends foot them for us cuz of the pitch. My partner gets up top and within 5 minutes dumps his whole pot of paint on the guy below him and all over the parking lot. We scramble and clean it up...a mess. We get going again and within a few minutes...you guessed it SPLAT..all over again, and all over Pete..this time fists were thrown as he thought it was done intentionally. Fight got broken up pretty quick as we had more cleaning to do in fast order. I'm pretty sure a lot of drinking took place shortly there after.

Too big for a sheep I think it's a Llama.
I am going to be laughing at that picture of the van til I die, which actually almost happened when I saw the pic.
Seriously though I carry and empty a rubbermaid box just for previously opened buckets.If it is a 5'er I put it in a trash bag.
The other thing if you do spill paint on a road you actually could paint over it with Exterior Black Paint, it is what they do at the paint stores and it sticks like super glue. You would think that it would peel---nope.

I once inadvertantly left a pink can of paint in the back leather seat.

It was warm out, can EXPLODED and tipped sideways, and baked til I was done for the day.

There is still pink in that back seat to this day

Oh and I had an idiot employee leave a can of paint on the roof at lunch time.

It was windy.

You do the math

Had a helper back in the day put his full roller tray right behind my ladder. Stepped off the ladder right into the tray of dark red paint. Ended up painting the rest of the day without a shoe or sock....Good times!!
