Another Reason Why I Love My Job

Because all it took was a little pouty lip and puppy dog eyes from me to convince the guys to let me pick the color of paint for the job trailer bathroom.

I work with great guys. They're very tolerant of the fact that I giggle every time I hear the word "nipple" (as in, 'We need a 50-foot air hose with a 3/4" nipple'); they're more than willing to hook up their big trucks and tow my car when my fuel pump dies (as in a month ago when that happened); and they're good sports about my continual clumsiness (as in when I slipped and fell down a huge hole). But I don't think they realized what they were signing up for when they agreed to let me pick the bathroom paint color.

So now we have a job trailer on site, painted very sensible, manly colors of tan and beige; but when you open the bathroom door, you are greeted by the following palate of joy:

It's called Lovely Lily. And the guys hate me.

I was going to say what Yanaj said, but she beat me to it. And whew am I glad she did! Who wants Bone Junior 'tude?? JK. Maybe the guys won't hate you so much if you fill the magazine rack with car mags. And put a manly black flower in a little vase on the back of the toilet.
