Im decortating my daughters bedroom, so we got up early and went to the local hardware store to buy paint, white paint to cover and to use as the base...easy you would think? no..oh no..walked in the store went straight to the paint department and was confronted by a saleswoman who like they do asked if i needed help....nope thanks just getting some white paint.
It went downhill from there "oh lovely we have a wide range of shades of white" she exclaimed all happy and jolly, what! i dont want shades, just plain boring white, its 8.25 in the morning i have had one coffee and really im sorry but im not a morning person and i sure as hell cant do happy jolly people..just 2 tins of white paint that is all i want.
But i like to think im not rude, so i smiled and replied thats nice but just white thanks, she followed me and i got a lovely description of her white with a hint of mint kitchen and how refreshing and clean it looks..lovely, thats just wanderful. Would i like white with a hint of blueberry..perfect for a bathroom apparently, or almond white nice and warm and cosy for the lounge, linnet white makes small rooms look bigger, but i just want WHITE....oh ffs and i cant be rude she looks old enough to be my gran so im standing there smiling like a moron....oh and guess whats sitting next to the desk as i type...
2 goddam bloody tins of white paint with a hint of rose.
