People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

One more tile job and some paint and then I think that's it for this client. She's been dragging her feet purchasing the tile and has been trying to get me to work past what she's paid up for. Plus, she lightweight sexually harassed me when I was doing the electric. (70 yo lady. house is covered in cat shit. not into it.)

Not that it's any of your business... but when I shut off the main circuit, she had to stop watching tv. So she comes to the living room, about 8 ft from me or so and starts loudly listening to an erotic adult novel on her phone.

I told her to turn it off but it still kind of creeped me out. Work is work, I don't really care what kind of the person the client is. Of course I'd rather work for milfy divorcees, but we don't always get what we want in life.

So yesterday I had to kind of yell at her. I have about a day's worth of painting before I start laying tile. So I tell her to pick out tile, or give me money and ill get the tile. Plus give me more money for me. (hardiebacker is on. Still have to red guard a few areas. Ill do that when I paint.)

And she's trying to get me to paint. Refusing to get tile.
Then she says she's waiting on a check.
So I say, I'm waiting on a check. Ill work when I'm paid and there's tile.

Ill add here that I got this client from my mom. They went to the same art class. Stained glass, I think.

Thanks mom, for the old deadbeat crazy lady that wants to bang me and screw me over.

She says she has the tile and money so I'm going over there today to paint.

I must say, you're a bigger man than me, I would have kept this story to myself.

Should have taken one for the team, is probably the last time you'll have a chance for that experience for at least 60 yrs
