This New Hire Just Blue It

| Working | May 9, 2013

(My father assembles wooden deck and lifeguard chairs and I paint them. We’ve hired a new girl, who insists she is a savant with a spray gun.)

Me: “Just do red today. Tomorrow is blue.”

New Girl: “Can I draw a little something something on the chairs?”

Me: “Not today. But if you submit a design, we’ll let you do a mock up next week.”

New Girl: “I’m hella good. Trust me. I’ll show you!”

(She takes the paint sprayer and holds down the trigger. Instead of being a skilled spray paint artist, she blasts red paint all over the floor, her, me, and a batch of chairs meant to be blue. She didn’t even say sorry. She just dropped the sprayer and walked out crying about her shoes.)
