It's gotta be my wife. She insists that the work be finished ASAP but balks every time I want to work when she is off for the day. Also, I can't paint or make too much noise if she is telecommuting that day. I get no appreciation for a job completed but am the first to hear if something looks "off" or is done in a way counter to her vision. She wonders why things take the time they do. Look, I'm not in the trades but I do many things as fast and better than a lot of the pros. I guess it's her lousy perception of what goes into a project whether it's time or materials. I love her very much but this bums me out. I'm only working for room and board, maybe I should send her some mock bills for my labor. I can't be the only one with a lousy client--you have my permission to vent here.
