you may think you're being helpful, when you lay a concrete floor in a potter's workshop........
and decide, against the request, to put a rough surface on it, "so that you don't slip and fall"......
the floor had to be painted anyway, so it is just as slippery.
I just curse your "helpfulness" a little every time I have to clean the darn thing!!
I just didn't have the time or the heart to get you to put a smooth surface on it!
You're a very good builder and you do try hard to please :-)
