If your base flashed within 5 to 10 minutes without reducer and it was thinner... and you reduced it again...and you say it takes twice as many coats to cover...what does it smell like?...does it smell like reducer before you reduce it? Does your jobber have a new guy mixing paint? If the jobber does, it might be an honest mistake, but you should be compensated...I can see it happening, if they send an new inexperienced employee to paint school and they teach the individual how to mix paint...the person may think he needs to add reducer...stranger things have happened...smell the paint and see if you can detect a reducer smell...un-reduced paint should not dry in 10 minutes if sprayed the recommended way and at normal temperatures.

It's a starting point and now that you mention that the other shops are all using the same jobber and having the jobber mix paint for's starting to walk like a duck and smell like a duck...get more information to see if it is a duck.
