Why so sloppy?


As a painter, I go into lots of homes & I am continually amazed at how much paint gets slopped onto woodwork, floors, & just about anything that isn't being painted. It's tough trimming in.......I get that.....but if you slop paint onto something you shouldn't, wouldn't you at least get a wet rag and try to wipe it off?

I think we both know the answer to that.

I'm continually amazed at the kind of painting job some people do. I don't think it's ever professionals that do that, but I've sure seen some doozeys. I guess "good enough" really is good enough for a lot of people.
