    The house i was supposed to clean looked very similar. Not sure what to do now. I went back to that house earlier today but no one was in. Hopefully they're happy with my work and will pay me or even make me a regular:(

    I've done that before. A customer was having a big extension & asked me to leave it for 6 months. Rang me when complete & I went there & cleaned a house 2 doors up. I remember thinking Christ this house has changed. I still see it every time I do the "proper" house.

    I've done that :)

    ......and ran for it not seeking any money or contact as I had read a post on here about someone clearing a customers neighbours guttering and coming out £600 out of pocket for the 'damage' he had caused........just takes one ******* (whatever that spells) to try and sue for touching their property without permission.

    I've actually done that, got upto the window and the cpl where laid in bed and definately ready for action...I started cleaning when my boss shouts your at the wrong house...

    10 mins later the bloke came out while I was cleaning next door and asked to be put on the list...happy days. But if I was just 5 mins later I wonder what might I have seen lol

    I caught a young couple having serious fun years ago. Took me ages to clean that window. Only time I've seen that in 35 years( at work)

    If I peeked through the wrong window at the wrong time down here in Brighton then I have no doubt that I'd be left with some post traumatic 'a window cleaner should never have to see that kinda sh*t' stress........they get up to all sorts down here!
