    Stay at home till is passes, light rain OK, but heavy rain all your going to do is annoy your customers, as it's pointless cleaning them if rain is boucncing around off the brickwork and on to the glass.

    bit harsh that Markyboy 50. Not everyone is sitting so pretty they can afford to miss a days work regardless of the weather.
    Like yourself, if I miss some I just get caught up later but I do het annoyed if I cant finish a day on schedule.

    Fair enough, first cust was happy for me to carry on, even made me a brew bless her. Did also say if shes not happy with them when they're dry ill redo them for free. Its stopped now anyway. Onwards and upwards.

    I've just stopped & called it a day. Its falling down here & like markyboy I won't clean when it's like this. My own opinion is I'm not being fair on my customers.
    But again thumps up to those that do. I won't knock people who do.
