A Strange Call
Today I received a nice chuckle from a phone call that came in earlier this morning. The caller on the other end wanted to know if I would be able to paint the stripes on her parking lot. Whoa, that was a new one for me. I have been asked to paint a lot of things but never have I been asked to do parking lot striping. As much as I would have loved to take the job, I just can’t see myself out with a paint and roller trying to paint the strips on a parking lot.
Yes of course I know there are companies specifically for this task. They have special machines, and special paint that is used for the job. The equipment and paint I have access to is strictly for home use and not for outside in a parking lot. I explained this to the lady calling and she was shocked to hear and had no idea. I think the strips on a parking lot are something you just really do not think much about, and when it came time to repaint hers, she had no idea where to turn. So she made a good call, just the wrong call.
