124,642. Peter the painter, along with others, submitted his price to the local council to paint the seaside resort’s historical lighthouse and won the contract.
After painting only half way up the lighthouse he suddenly realised he had grossly underestimated the amount of paint it would require to finish the job.
Undaunted, and determined not to lose any money on the deal, he added a fair quantity of turpentine to the remaining paint. After completing the job, Peter went into the pub opposite and treated himself to a gratifying pint. Taking his drink to the front window of the pub, he casually glanced across to the lighthouse. As the evening sun fell across it, to his horror, Peter’s cost-saving efforts to augment the paint supply for the top half of the structure stood out like a sore thumb.
In despair, he ran outside, shook his fists at the lighthouse and shouted: ‘What am I supposed to do now?’
Suddenly, a voice thundered out of the clouds: ‘Repaint, my son. And thin no more!’ (Painting & Repentance) Anon
