    Speed isn't everything Jimbo. As long as the customer is happy and you are earning a living, don't let it bother you.

    Don't worry jimbo. Neatness first. Speed comes second.
    Good finish gets more work.

    Hey Jimbo dont get too down about it , its surprising how much longer a job takes when you got 3.4m high ceilings. I recently finished a job with 3.4m ceilings and it p*ssed me off big style cos it seemed to take forever. If your contractor is happy then good on ya. (stick a bit on top of your rate next time though, to cover yourself)
