Conversation with my Roofer this morning at 7 am on front lawn. " I was having a stairwell built in the house, the work was fantastic but one morning early I caught a whiff of something familiar and found my Carpenter on the front lawn toking up for the day. He said it helps him concentrate. In the meantime I was getting quotes for painting my house and 3 of the 4 painters quoting me had alcohol on their breath while quoting the job. One wanted half up front and I says why , I roof houses at $10 grand a pop and just put the bill out at the end? He says I need money to operate. I says okay all it takes is one gallon to get started. I says why don't you paint the back half of my house and then I'll pay for that, then you can paint the front half. Painter says I can't work for you you're too hard to work for, I shout out to my capenter and ask him if I'm too hard to work for , he says your're a slave driver so that the painter can hear him! My roofer says to me why do painters always have alcohol on their breath??"

Perhaps it's the paint fumes they smell all day, but every painter I've ever met or worked with has been a bit, shall I say, "off."
