Today, Sunday of all days I am having my house painted by a Japanese owned company. That's right not all contractors in Southern California are Mexican; although, here is the glitch. Originally we contracted for the work to start May 1, and wrapping it up on May 2. However, the idea of painting on Sunday did not come up until yersterday, when the owner of the company called requesting a schedule change. It was not until the painters started arriving this morning, that I realized the reason behind the change...the painters are Mexican, and tomorrow May 1 is "their day off," or at least the paint company owners are anticipating that they will take off.
Right now they are working very hard to finish a 2-day job in one day.
