Paint Fail
« on: February 21, 2012, 03:38:59 PM »
At work one Saturday morning last year. They gave this guy the job of painting a workshop floor, before I moved some machinery in on the Monday. Went in to check how he was doing.

I have no words.

Turns out this life c**p is just one big distraction from death but a good one. For the love of god dont give yourself time to think.

Well, I've zoomed right in on that photo, and I have to say, I wouldn't have given him the job....

And anyway, he's missed a bit...  :lol:

He's missed the top of the wall's as well.
I had a mate who did a similar thing with wax floor polish, it was extremely funny watching him trying to escape.
The beauty of Not Planning, is that failure comes as a Complete Suprise and is Not preceded by a period of worry and depression.

He had already checked out the gantry crane, and had a plan?
