As I had mentioned previously here my apartment building is getting a new coat of paint and general beautification (I use that term loosely) done as an effort to bring back the glory of 5 years ago. At that point of time, it was one of only 3 apartment buildings in this area and therefore stood out. When we first moved in here last September it looked like an old hag amidst the newer and much prettier looking apartments. Like a chaperon to much younger ladies on a night out on the town!
Well now the paint work is almost over; the outside is done and looking kinda nice. There is life still left in this wreck of a building! However these stupid painters are driving me nuts. The buggers are so loud and today I almost had it. They had to paint the balcony in my apartment and came in at sharp 9 am to do so. Question : How many painters does it take to paint a small, tiny balcony? Answer : Three moronic assholes and one idiot to supervise! They are so fucking annoying and I could barely contain my frustration and anger. There’s more – they left a trail of white footprints on the floor leading from the door to the balcony. They splattered paint all over the balcony floor and the wall and the wash basin on the balcony. Then they used a liberal dose of kerosene to clean it when I complained. Now you can’t go near the balcony door before being consumed by that horrible smell. Holy fuck! The only consolation is that today is the last day – I never have to see these schmucks again.
