Take a deep breath and relax. It's only paint for Pete's sake ! As far as the "You must be in Canada ... no" comment, if you read it properly you wouldn't have gotten your "gotch in a knot"! There was no mention of Canadians being dumb or inferior, just a paint person giving paint advice.
So, unless you have trouble with your countertops, why don't you give it up as will Mr. Paint.
I, Mrs. Paint, an AMERICAN, am scolding you both for your bad behaviour on a normally calm website.
Now, let's get back to the business at hand here ... why don't you give me YOUR advice on countertops ... Mr. Paint and I have old ugly ones that need to be replaced or painted ... What do you think ... kind sir/madame ???
