    I have recently restarted window cleaning after a break of a few years and have been canvassing a bit and booked a £20 house a few days ago.
    Turned up today and the customer was chatting to his neighbour and asked me how would I do the fascias and gutters without a ladder, I said sorry mate I'm only doing the windows, he then tells me I had agreed to do the windows for 15 and to add the fascias for a fiver.
    Twice I saw him wink at he's neighbour thinking he's having one over on silly old me.
    I smiled nicely at him and very loudly told him to
    Clean your own f£££ing window fatso!! and got in my van and drove away grinning.
    I had another one return my booking text saying she never booked a clean but just took a card, I explained that I wouldn't have her name and number if she hadn't booked and that it is ok to change your mind but just be honest about it
    She's definitely got the hump now
    I think maybe I'm too old for this ****

    LMAO.

    Good start, and I mean that. That's the difference between a noob and a veteran, the amount of :turd: you are willing to put up with decreases the longer you are in the job.:thumbsup:

    The very reason why I am against door knocking, far too many time wasters and ones that agree on the step, then close the door and think about it and wonder why they said yes, then end up been a one offer or a total pain in the ass!

    Good leaflets (so they can decide if your for them in their own time) social media is deadly done right, and other forms of media such as repuatable local magazines and been seen in the streets & recommended is all much better IMO.
