Went to Bunnings today (Aussie Home Depot) for some Latex primer / sealer. I’m standing in the paint section. Scanning. Searching.
Bunnings Guy: “You going okay?”
Me: “Actually, I’m looking for latex primer?”
BG: [Look of serious concern on his face] “Lay.Tex……. Primer? You want to paint latex? Don’t reckon we have any primer that will work on latex. All we have is oil based and water based.”
Me: “Great! Latex actually means water based. I’m priming a wall. I’ll take one of those.”
BG: “You from ‘Merica?”
BG: “It’s really called Latex paint in “Merica?”
