Things are Looking Up



I hadn't noticed the extent of the speckles during the daylight hours, but after dark, the living room light revealed its full glitter. For no particular reason, I happened to look up, and whoa, the freakin whiteout at the top of the glass door. Happy Aloha Friday, btw. And welcome to today's post, Speckles Part II, the sequel. This bares reiterating, "Do not spray paint a high rise building in the trade winds." As you see 2 photos below, Spray Paint Man left his signature on the masterpiece. It might be worth something someday. It's worth a lot today. Judging by the wipe marks somebody was fully cognizant of the screw up, but just leave em already, who gonna notice?" For all I know, the painting company might have a policy to follow up with a clean-up round after all the painting is done, all floors at once instead of piece meal. They had a wash crew last week to prep the walls. There's a clean up crew at every construction job that I, myself, ever worked as part of the routine. Why be cynical. I mean, really, what's the odds the fine folks will skip town instead of ante up and cut into their profits.

Oh wow! Ron... That's terrible. I sure hope your association goes after the painters. That's awful!

Kay- yes, the problem has to be addressed. As it should be.

yes, it's awful! Hope management does something about it.

gigi- it's not so much doing something about it, but more a question of knowing how. Litigation is an entirely different creature. In this corner, the aggrieved party. In the opponent's corner, the contractor, etc., who isn't today your bosom buddy.
