One late night, while working with clients (who were way too fussy) I vented my frustration by punching the wall in the hall in the office......Very tough to justify to my boss the next day.

The only other thing to mention is to keep some of the bigger broken pieces to take to a paint store. They will be able to match the paint pretty close.

You still cant paint over only the patch. The color match won't be perfect. You will need to paint the entire wall from corner to corner.

That's where talking to the landlord might help out. He might have left-over paint.
