The site and smell of a newly constructed house invokes a sense of awe, but it's the paint job that makes it a home.
What kills me is when a couple of very good finish carpenters custom build a beautiful built in cabinets in a home and the HO says we will paint how hard can it be? Heck we just spent $15, 0000 grand on custom woodwork we want to save some money it's only paint or stain. We can always take a class at HD.....true story...

I have no pity when they break down and cry over how they ruined their cabs.

I have a long time customer who had some really nice cabinets built in a rental house he owned.He was in too big of a hurry and couldn't wait for me so he hired some other guy really cheap.Now he's crying about the runs and sags and wants to know if I can come fix all of it.....not in a hurry now.

Yeah, right. In response to a question raised in another thread, my remark is both ironic and sarcastic.

Okay, but is it literal or figurative?

I suppose, unless you gave them hemorrhoids or maybe a carbuncle, it would have to be figurative.
