Pretty much have it down.
I know your argument. Doesn't bother me a bit.
Except for the beer part, I agree and the roller only takes 2 minutes, if that.

We'll just agree to disagree. There are plenty of roller cleaners out there. I use to be one, but I'm now in a twelve step program. I know of a guy who cleans them everyday, even if they're going back in the next. I'm always dubious of time estimation though, with due respect. I teamed with an old boss on a section of siding on a job. I asked if he wanted to start it before lunch, about 15 minutes away. He laughed and said if we can't have it done before lunch, we don't deserve to sit down and eat it. Well, we worked through lunch, and them some. You've heard the saying, "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink". Apparently, for Brush, it's been modified. "You can lead the horse to water, and, you can make him drink" It's all good. Have a nice weekend, it's glorious weather in Cape May.

Lost you. I never have and never will smoke---cigarettes. When I smoke, breaks tend to take longer and I eat more. I don't take even smoking breaks of whatever time on my clients time clocks.
