A painting contractor was discussing a decorating job with a woman and she was showing him which colors she wanted in each room of her house.
In the first room, she said she would like it painted pale blue.
The contractor wrote this down , then went to the window , opened it and yelled out “Green side up!”
In the next room, she said she wanted it painted yellow.
The contractor wrote it down, then again went to the window and shouted “Green side up!”
This continued in every room in the house, even though the woman never said she wanted green in any of the rooms.
Finally she asked the man, “Why do you keep shouting “Green side up”?
The contractor gave an impatient groan and replied, “I apologize Miss, but I have a crew of blondes laying turf across the street”.
