One Up for the OAPs
#1
Yesterday I painted a couple of paling fences for the old man. I hired an airless sprayer as I didn't want to faff about, had a work booking in the middle of it all, and there was a fair bit of wood to cover.

Anyhow, thirty litres of paint later, I'm realising more is needed. Perfect mission for the old coot; I send him to Bunnings (just like B&Q) for another 10 litres of fence paint and spraying additive.

What kills me, is the bugger paid less than I - a regular trade customer - have to, for exactly the same paint! :brickwall: TWENTY percent less, too. He's been officially warned "Do that again sunshine, and you're buying everything for me". I'll be querying my invoices with the store as well...
