  5. Like it! Stolen for future reference, although count myself lucky as I have never come across any of these idiots. All the other windies I've met have been really nice and pleasant.

    Got 2 phone calls today from the area, looking forward to pricing them up. I've been thinking A) Why did his customer show him my leaflet and B) He must have seen his backside to actually phone me.

    I work on jobs where I bump into other windies all the time and never have a problem. Now I've met 2 idiots in my area. I had one trying to tell me I'm not a proper windie because I use the water fed pole system. Truth is I went into a smith and jones pub because the windows where minging and got the job, when I did it there was another windie sat outside. I spoke to the manager who explained they sacked him because he was taking the proverbial, missing windows and leaving the place a mess. The manager told me how I had restored his faith in window cleaners. I went and spoke to this windie and he was trying to play mind games with me. He told me real window cleaners don't use pole systems. I told him he must not do much commercial work as there is no way you can do a risk assessment for ladder work without it being questioned. He told me that you can't fall off a ladder, I know loads of window cleaners who have was my reply. Not real window cleaners I was told. To boil it all down the guy has had his own business for 8 years and has a P reg van. Doesn't wear a uniform and looks a mess. If I'd been trading 8 years I'd have at least 1 new van on the road and it would be a top spec set up.

    I can't stand people who do the minimum to call themselves a window cleaner and then pull the rest of us down. I used to work on the ladders on my old rover and I used to struggle to do £100 a day. With my system in my van I know I could double that and leave the job looking cleaner. Don't get me wrong I'm not water fed through and through, if I thought I could do a better job with a blade I'll get it out the van.
