    £1040 earned a year?.. Thats about £21 a week, so £84 a month.
    Not much but worth adding to your work. I would offer around £300

    Why don't you just canvas those shops yourself instead?
    When I hear of bits of work for sale like that alarm bells start to ring as to why the person wants to get shot.

    they may be bad payers, we usually pass bad payers on or just dump them.

    i have a big job i have just started to do. very big private house with lots of land, ive done it once, walking in town on a sunday morn got eye contact after recognising her + hubby went to say morning her facial expression showed she seen me but just ignored me as if to say its only the window cleaner not worth aknowledging

    thinking twice about doing them again now people try to be different if they think they are a better class of people within the big house.
    to me everyone is the same money or not. IT COSTS NOTHING TO BE NICE its free makes you a better person.
    i chat to all my customers , and listen to them. i find it great. especially when the gossip starts

    Had same myself about a year back got totally blanked when eye contact made'he knew who I was alright,I got real hump over it and dropped straight away I'm not having that ....never heard from them to this day"".......perhaps they wanted shot who knows,
    But I remember how condescending he had been on a couple of occassions,this for me confirmed it.
