    I never understand this. Why not just show up on time? Is it really that hard to show up on time? I get things happen, and being late every once in a while is no big deal. But if you show up late...

    It's faster to go find the color you need and the reference chart to know what color to use rather than a paint marker? Just keep a couple paint markers by your stock and write on it. Seems to me...
