The young man in the hardware shop was extremely rude to me. I bought some paint to transform my brick wall into a beach scene, to make it look as though I live on a beach (it only took a few hours to choose the exact shade of blue I wanted) and I loaded the cans into the basket on my tricycle.
He helped me stack the tins of paint next to my thermos of coffee and vegemite sandwich. (Pedalling makes me peckish) So far so good.
Then the cheeky little bugger says to me “You will need to get thinner”. What audacity. Unmitigated gall.
I won’t shop there for paint again
