    Had what I call a fishing phone call today by what sounded like a polish chap asking how much would I charge to clean 4 windows on a 5th floor flat.

    Do you lads get fishing phone calls too as obviously he just wanted to find out what I charge over the phone as refused to give me the property address then hung up.

    Never had a phone call. A polish fella stopped me working, and asked how much do you charge? I asked where he lived and I could give him a quote, he said oh its just the same as the house I was doing, £8 house, so I told him £20..

    Yes I know Jeff. Maybe he was just finding out if it was worth his while getting a bigger pole ;)

    I personally have enough pain doing 3rd floor windows but after saying that I'm getting old :D

    Yeah I get them. I just give them a really silly low price. I get emails also, and by the way there worded I can tell there just fishing.
