I have had a few in my time, but this one was my best one yet. But in fairness he was right I was on his patch lol. One of my customers moved house, round the corner from a cluster I have, so I said yeah we work up there, you want us to come by and give you a quote, no problem. Couple of week later I arrive, and while speaking to the customer, another windy I know parks behind me and pamps his horn and waves me over. Now I was mid talking to the customer, and thought that this was a bit rude, so I could see what was coming. I finished talking to the customer, and went over to his car. "Hows it going pal what can I do for you?" I said. "You got customers up here?" "Aye, I have a few, why?" "Well this is my area, no other window cleaners come up here" "Well in that case I will tell you the same thing I tell any window cleaner, that tells me this is his patch. I work where I want, so do something about it, or f'k off" he replied "is that right", then jumps out the car at me. Mistake... I am a foot taller and this guy is in his 50's, so twenty year younger. He tries to square up to me, "is that right?" he asks again. "Aye, thats f'ing right, so come on then, what are you going to f'ing do about it". "I see you up here, I am going to run you out of here" "I am here now, and I am not running anywhere, who do you think you f'ing are?" Anyway long story short I gave him my full French vocabulary, called him a rouge, which he replied "I am not a rough" lol, and told him too cross the street if he sees me coming in the future. Off he went. What bugs me most, is that these cowards don't have it in them to follow through with there threats, they just try to use intimidation tactics. When you stand up to them, they don't say boo to you again. But what gaws me the most about this guy, is he has been cleaning my grandparents windows for years, and has prob known me since I was little and I know he is buck'shee, mainly because he was cleaning gutters for £4 a house, lol. Probably the first time, I have walked away from something like that, and looked back and can no, I said everything I could have possible said to him, there is nothing else I would have liked to have replied with, other than a smack in the face, but I am glad I kept me reserve with that though.
