In the style of cnc... Me got a call 2 nights back... that accent...oh no here we go. So he wants pressure washing doing for his driveway. Me already does that street when I'm not on the sofa so I know the style of house. "Drivevay and vindows" he says. So I gave him a price, if anything it was cheap but it should be straightforward so I thought. Haggle, haggle, haggle....10 mins later.... He tells me he already has a pressure washer, but he doesn't have the right connection for it, ok no problem I should have everything me needs. So I got to the house this morning and low and behold woman, fella is at work. She seemed nice, all smiles etc, so I thought this should be ok. As she shows me the area needing doing, I am scanning the area for a tap..... ...."wheres the tap?" "Oh, ve dont have a tap". "Eh?" So the 'connection that your husband didnt have....WAS THE FCKING TAP ITSELF!!!!!! "Did your husband not think it pertinant to mention that you don't have an outside tap?" .....by this point me was not happy, me likes to be on the sofa about now with a beer. SO I am half way through the driveway and here she comes. "Oh, you are going to do the patio arent you"? ....so predictable it was a joke. "No, I said to your husband is was specifically just the driveway". "And vindows?" "Yes and windows" ....."if you would like the patio doing it'll be another £30.". Oh no, thats too much. "I'm really sorry but I gave a very cheap price to your husband and I'm afraid I have to add more if there is more work to do". "Ok I talk to my husband, you carry on." Hmmmmm, suspicious now. So me stops and waits to see what is said as I don't want to move my pressure washer, just to move it back again. "Yes ok, thats fine". "Great". So I start doing the patio and about 3 quarters of the waythrough she comes out wavingher arms saying, "No, I said I didnt want it done". ...surprise surprise. So I drew a giant Z in the patio before telling he I was leaving, and started packing up my stuff. Her driveway was half way done, her patio had a giant Z in it, and I was off! The shock on her face was a picture. She started pleading so I insisted that I'm not doing another ounce of work until I get the money upfront as I didnt believe they were going to pay. SO an argument ensued, all a bit public but I was not backing down on this. I had her husband on the phone telling me he is not a cheat/liar..... but the best thing about it all.... Is that I have recorded most of it on my phone, just in case there is ever a dispute of any sort. Got the idea from boarcity the other night and it worked a treat. Me and the mrs have already watched it back and had a chuckle. No swearing or shouting, just calm and collected. A lot more to the story,but its one for the pub as its a bit much to type. Long story short. Finished job. Got paid. Drove home smiling.
