The Paint War: A Tale of Blame, Friendship, and a $200 Mistake 🎨💔💸

When a simple paint job turns into a domestic drama, it's hard to know who's really at fault. A wife's wish to hire a professional painter was ignored, leading to a color catastrophe, an unexpected bill, and a heated blame game. Despite the conflict, the painting was completed, and the couple paid the 'friend tax', learning a valuable lesson about mixing business with friendship. But when it comes to who was right and who was wrong, the internet has its own opinions. Let's see what the world thinks of this colorful conundrum...🌍🗣️

"NTA I am a painter and decorator by trade and I wouldn't dream of blaming the client for me painting a different colour on the wrong walls, let alone ask them to pay MORE. This is literally part of the job, what if you had a feature wall with a different colour and he mixed it up and cut in with that? Lots of people have a slightly darker shade of the same 'family' of colours as feature walls. May just be difference in painting style but you shouldn't cut in after either, you roll over in order to remove and hide brush marks, some painters even use a small roller (usually referred to as a rad roller) to remove as much as possible." 💅🎨
