    Just cleaned a new customer where you have to clean the windows from inside by turning them around. the son was in and we got to a room and he said open this window and left me. So I opened it and cleaned it and it would not close.

    Anyway I cleaned the rest of the house and got paid and left. Now the builder brother just called me saying he can't get the window closed and hes tried everything. Apparently it's now twisted and I must come sort it out.

    I'm going away in the morning and a bit pissed as it's being blamed on me. I even said to the son can you close it as I don't want to damage anything....

    the closing mechanisms are surprisingly complicated to work out ,unless you do a lot of jigsaws ,if so youll work it out in seconds . id guess one of the metal links has "gone over centre" if you get my drift

    the lad will be freezing in bed tonite with it open all night.

    To true smurf...some people do try it on...! life skills learnt...admit nothing, and if your old enough to remember the TV programme Hogans Heroes....you'll remember the character Sgt. Schultz...and his famous catch phrase..."I know nothing"....lol :finger:
