Changing paint after purchased

Oh man, you nailed it.

About five years ago I gave a guy and his girlfriend a fan deck and a half dozen color charts, this was in June and we were scheduled to start in August. Well, you guessed it, when we pulled up to the jobsite they still hadn't decided on colors!!!!!! And this was for the kitchen only!!!!

Then she decided she might like a pink kitchen!!!! Fortunately we talked her out of that....

What are some of the things we deal with?

1. Furniture/china that is supposed to be moved and isn't.
2. Bushes that are supposed to be trimmed back and aren't.
3. Dogs that are not put away, and poop that is not picked up.
4. Driveways that are blocked with R.V.s and boats.
5. Extension cords that were not left out for us to use.
6. Renters who hate you being there, and let you know it.
7. Wasp nests.
8. Broken or locked gates.
9. Steep roofs.

That's enough...I'm getting in a bad mood. lol

People sleep peacefully at night because rough men stand guard to deal with violence on their behalf.
