There were two house painters painting the house next door today. I saw that one was very interested in watching me play on the patio from his ladder. I figured Id start missing a lot of shots and make believe I didnt know he was watching. Hell, I figured it wont cost me anything and its good lemon practice.

About a half-hour later he comes up to the fence and says, You hit them pretty good, want to play a few games?
I say, I only play for cheap sets, like a $100 or two for a race to 7 nine-ball.
Ill play you one set, race to seven for $200, He said.

To make this short, he came over. I let him use my Dale Perry and my break cue. I won the set 7-2. Both games he won by making the 9 on the snap once and a dead one-foot combo on the 9 the other game. He had a killer break, but his game wasnt too much.

Now lets see. Thats the landscaper for $300, the mailman for $275, the Fedex guy for $220, and now the painter for $200 in less than 6-months, and I never had to leave home. I only wish My patio was on the street side. Then I could really get some traffic. I love when plans come together. Johnnyt

Johnny you are too fckn funny man. Pretty soon everyones houses are going to look like shit, yards will be over run with weeds and nobody will be getting their mail/packages. Hell maybe you should hire a contractor to move your patio to the front of your house. Sounds like he would probably end up paying you for him to do it for you :D:D:D

Does the painter charge by the hour, or by the job? So, how much do you think you cost your neighbor? :wink:

Yeah, he was painting that guys house. Said he's paint mine for $1200. He probably could do it for $1000, but tacked the $200 on from the lost set. Johnnyt

The great part is they know where you live.

Your house will get a free "paint" job.

Your lawn will get free seeds (weeds)

Your mail will become "lost"

And your packages will become not deliverable must pick up at local Fedex

Also if I was hustled like that I would also set up a "sucker" to really clean you out.

If you thought you could steal from from poor slob who owned his own table and you didn't think could play at all, then you would deserve the same thing these guys got.

Why don't some of the skeptics go take him on and find out?

Johnny admitted he couldn't play for crap on here for years until he put in his home table and got rolling again. He never seemed like a BS artist then so I am very doubtful he is a BS artist now. Could be, but somebody has to pay to find out!
