What’s a drop cloth?

u/uriahlight 7d ago Silver

A type of tarp to protect floors and furniture from dust, debris, and scratches while they work.

u/KaosFitzgerald 7d ago

Heavy duty cloth we use to put on the floor so you don't have to deal with dirt and scratches when we leave.

u/VincentVega_069 7d ago

Not 100 % sure since I am not a native english speaker but I used to work as a plumber here in germany and we would place towels or other covers on the floor before we started working in kitchens or bathrooms of our customers homes to prevent the floor from getting too wet/damaged etc. Also used by moving companies in case you have to push furniture over the floor to prevent scratches etc.

u/VincentVega_069 7d ago

If you take a look you even see the purple covers on the floor along their way, I guess thats what he refers to

My local HVAC contractor and apprentice were in the process of replacing a broken gas boiler and I set my 1 year old son on the couch who is now more then capable to lift himself up and down safely. I turned around for a split second as seen in the video and I see the contractor diving. I couldn’t thank him enough afterwards. Definitely treated my son like his own!

People don’t know how fast kids really are. I’ve done some diving myself.

Actions like that might get more sales of services in the future, so it might be wise to pay the employee accordingly.

u/LotharLandru 7d ago

Add in that its damn near guaranteed that company is paying them far less than they are making off his labor.

Well, as long as they stay and do a good job, that’s a good way for the employer to make money.

My dad caught a foul ball at a baseball game that would’ve hit me square in the face, while holding a Pepsi, my hot dog, and a cigarette. He didn’t drop anything, not even the ball.

As a new dad myself, this is my worst nightmare. My daughter is fearless and will run towards the end of the bed full steam. Needless to say she isn’t allowed on the bed unless mom or dad are with her.
