What would you do if these jokers showed up?
A friend and I were joking the other day about names for Painting Companies. We thought up a few scenarios that were fairly humorous as we painted away the day, names of companies you would not hire.
Top 5 Painting Companies you should not call
#5 Slow and Sloppy Painters: The Ad in the phonebook shows a few gregarious fellows in painting caps behind the wheel of an old truck, with paint cans falling off the back creating a huge mess. You know there’s a problem when: You overhear Painters talking about how hard it will be to get that stain out of a new rug…
#4 Aspiring Actors Painting Guild: That’s right, hire these Discount Divas and watch the drama! Paint Wagon has the Thespian’s Happy and Sad Mask Faces on it. A whole crew of guys, with telephone ear pieces with the microphone wires, their phones going off constantly. All day the job sight is filled with cries of “Oh no, you didn’t!” in the background.
#3 Fast and the Furious Paint Racers: The Ad shows a Corvette racing to your house…paint cans flying off a wagon behind the car. Work goes well, with many cries of “Go Speed Painter” in the background…the moment you decide to change a color or alter a scheme, or find something wrong, you find out how furious they can be with you, the homeowner! Also, what’s up with those burnt rubber tire marks in your new driveway?!
#2 Wacky and Wonderful Paint Guys: They show up for work in Court Jester Hats. You find your dog painted with green stripes. Painter is teaching your toddler secret language of “Mumbo Jumbo”. Painter claims he is applying new “Invisible Primer”. Problem: At bottom of ad in phone book it says “Also available for birthday parties.”
#1 Parole Painters: Ad shows…Mug Shots! Not a good sign! Or how about this: Painters driving up in a stolen Police Cruiser with ladders tied on it! After you negotiate price, Painter solemnly says “I know sentence you to have your home painted.” You know there’s a problem when: You arrive back home after work, and you’re missing, well, half the stuff from your home!
