Holly Crap,Oy. Bad news. I feel lucky about the time I had to go touch up a popcorn ceiling after water damage only to find that the ceiling was still raw mud - had never been primed or painted...in a small condo FULL of furniture and "hoarder" worthy levels of kitschy stuff everywhere. Yeah. I had to prime and paint the whole thing (while the wife called the husband 3 times to wonder why I wasn't done yet).
My latest annoyance is different (pic). But also annoying. Window replacement on an older place. Takes "the painter will fix it" to one of those "are you kidding me" levels. But the response is always "can't you just caulk that?"

Yeah. "The guy" has been a problem for a while. DK if he's been fired yet just because I know he's been teetering. Sometimes I just want to say "know what, I'll just do it myself..." But I'm part timing it these days and not flush with time.That looks more than light carpentry as a fix. Looks to me like time travel would be required and grabbing the sawzall out of the hands of the guy that destroyed that poor thing.
