    I was at work when a trad guy approached me (I was doing trad ) and asked if I had a lot on, gave the, it pays the bills answer. He told me he's only been going 2 months and didn't have a vehicle yet, but had a house to do out of town for a cleaning company where he cleans the shop so did. Want to do it. Said ok and so I phone the woman up to arrange it. She asked if I had my own van and ladders tod her yes and usually use pole. Then she said i Could do hers as she Didn't like he'd let her down. I was caught off the hop with that and before I could square my head up the conversation was over, but I'm gonna have to tell her I can't do that to the lad, I mean, he gets me a bit of extra and then I take his bread and butter, I wouldn't sleep

    If you were asked to do the work without going out of your way to take work from someone else then why not indeed.
