    Hi guys
    As I believe it was for most of the UK, it tipped it down here in Norfolk today, all day long, just the fine rain that saturates your waterproofs.

    Still managed to do £315 of work with my missus, and only had one new customer say can I leave it because of the weather. Most others questioned it, but were fine.

    Today was all new customers to me, from some work I bought. I know my regulars wouldn't be bothered as I've cleaned them for years in all weather.

    But what do you say to customers who moan about the rain and WFP?

    My line is "just as the rainwater doesn't smear when it rains, this water is cleaner and will be absolutely fine. I've done this for years with no complaints, and I don't intend for you to be the first :)"

    Just want to get some words in my head to sweet talk customers in, on a wet day.

    J

    I didn't work today, for some reason (and weather was nice when I woke up) I decided to clean up the van and have a day chilling out. Guess I picked the right one :))

    Had some really good jobs booked in today, did the first in the rain as I knew he wasnt into question it, but not the rest as they were all first cleans and I don't want to get off on the wrong foot.

    No rain for me today, just very grey. Got a good day in including two builders cleans next to each other. It was actually nice not melting in the heat.

    it wasnt too bad in colchester drizzledrazzled all day. i learnt years ago its better NOT to wear a coat or waterproofs, better to wear wafer thin clothing that dries from the heat of my body.
    one of my lads has a hole in his shoe , wet feet and later in the day we had an inside job to do. "if i take my shoes off i will wet his floor from my wet socks.."

    "no matter, by the time ur done your socks will be dry off his carpet ! "
