I want you to take a moment and think about what you do for a living. If you were to leave work early or decide to start a project but then later decided that you were going to put the rest of it off until tomorrow, what would happen?

Maybe you'd have some extra emails in your inbox the next day, you might miss an important call from a client or you just have some added stress because you just made extra work for yourself because you wanted to rush home and binge watch House of Cards. No big deal.

That's because it's only you that's really affected by your absence. Unlike the residents of Sussexx, Wisconsin. When painters who were tasked with painting the town's water tower had to leave the job early due to venting issues, they left behind the letters "S-E-X."

The painting contractor spoke with WTMJ and explained what happened.

A venting issue? Yeah, right. Anyone else get the feeling that they did this on purpose or that they've simply been inhaling too many paint fumes?

I'm not mad about it, but I feel sorry for the parents who had to explain why the water tower said "sex."
