Adventures at Bunnings

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?”

Me: “Yep.”

BG: “It’s really called Latex paint in “Merica?”

Me: “Yep.”
