A contractor was speaking with a client about painting some offices she had on the third floor.
“In this area of the office,” the client instructed, “I would like a pale blue.”
The contractor wrote it down, then went to the window, opened it, and yelled, “Green side up!”
In the second room, she told the contractor, “I’d like this office area painted in a soft yellow.”
He wrote this on his pad, walked to the window, opened it, and again yelled “Green side up!”
The client was curious, but said nothing.
In the third area, the client said, “I would like this area painted a warm rose color.”
As had been done the previous two times, the contractor wrote this down, walked to the window, opened it, and yelled, “Green side up!”
Unable to contain her curiosity, the client then asked, “Why do you keep yelling ‘Green side up’?”
“Oh, I’m sorry about that, Ma’am,” replied the contractor. “I currently have a crew of blondes laying sod out front.”
