There are 3 levels of painter:
House painter, Commercial painter, Industrial painter.
House painter is the most common, usually an independant contractor working with a small crew.
Commercial painters generally work for a large construction company where paint is applied by sprayers with a large crew.
Industrial painters work with specialized coatings on large metal
tanks, ships & bridges.
In many parts of the country commercial and industrial painters are members of a trade union. House painters generally are not.

Basically "to have the painters in" refers to a woman when she's on the rag. That time of the month when women are better to ignore... for more reasons than one!
God Laura is such a cranky bitch today! She must have the painters in...

A painter is a member of an Armed unit that goes into the enemies territory to set a specific target for a missile to hit.
The target set is something that can be traced easily but cannot be found.
Usually some elctrical device with a frequency given only to the Allies so they can hit it.
"Get a painter to set the target.. it's the only way"
