A heart in mouth moment today

Busy WFPing a job, get to the bottom windows and start on 6 panes in an open porch. I look at the floor and guess what I was soaking! Well, it was a canvass backed picture with the back towards me. Oh sh1t, I turned the water off and slowly turned it round. It was a water colour and water was running off it. I was thinking no no no these are posh people and I've just ruined a piece of art :eek: Luckily it was a print and had been stuck on the canvass and the ink hadn't run. I cleaned the rest of the porch by cloth and turned the pic round to dry. When I finished, I knocked the door and checked that the pic was dry. As I was checking the pic, the daughter opened the door to find me with the pic in my hand :confused: Oh, I'll just move this somewhere safe I said. Cnc would've been proud cause I did a pretty sharpish runner when she shut the door :whistle:

 

Be careful out there peeps.

Was it a seascape by any chance? :laugh:

It's rather fun when you squirt water into window vents by mistake and watch all the dirty water flow down the inside pane of glass :D

 

You can add that one to your list cnc

Remember before you move your feet even without a pole in your hands best look down & all around you unlike a wfp guy today working across the road from me.

 

I bet you can't guess what he did?:rolleyes:

I was walking over to his van to have a chat as you do. Heard ppl talking as was a big hedge in the way but was intrigued what hose reel he was using as was box like shape. Next thing I see a chap fall over it and a woman’s voice shouts are you all right. The chap quickly gets back onto his feet and said to the woman I'm ok thanks.

 

Was not so funny when I start talking to him as he split his finger wide open on the thin metal casing that surrounded the reel. That just goes to show how easy things can happen when distracted from what you are doing.:rolleyes:
