The Company Name - The Stripy Paint Company - What's that about?
In many workplaces a new employee would be sent off to look for things that couldn’t be found as a practical joke. The new employee would often then been sent from place to place in search of the item until someone took pity on them and explained that the item didn’t exist. In the building industry common items to be sent to look for are – sky hooks, glass hammers, buckets of steam, skirting board ladders, Stripy Paint etc. At The Stripy Paint Company we do a lot of searching.
