    I love it! Why would I spend so much time on a window cleaning forum? Bit sad really :D I always moan and cuss when I'm working though. Think I'd still do it if I won the lottery, but I'd dump the sh1te jobs.

    never really thought about it ...worked from 14 with daddy and so ....its all i have done.....did three years at college and went straight back to it....where else can you get different challenges every day....be your own boss....and of course...your not allowed to be sick as you wont get any money...and you meet such interesting characters(no i didnt say richard) and see all of life before your eyes....i will be doing it till i drop...so...not long now....:rolleyes:

    yep some days i lose the will to live but then i can just go home get my feet up have a milky coffee and a fry up and watch...hobsons choice on the tele and it puts everything back into perspective...

    I don't like it, never have and probably never will. BUT, its good money the hours are good, only work 3 days so it cant be bad, could not imagine going back to a job for minimum wage.

    Boar the guys in the van im assuming is the ones that brought a round off sasha?

    That's quite a sad comment Shazzy. I believe everyone should aim to enjoy their work, with window cleaning , I think it's easier to enjoy than other jobs out there by far. Not sure I would continue if I won the lottery though Tuffers, the ladders might scratch the Ferrari!

    If he hate it now Boar, he'll hate it even more when he's undercut everyone. He'll be working lots for not a lot of money. I can't stand people that undercut an honest price. Its just so short sighted.

    Back to the original question, I was a bit nervous up a ladder in the early days, but it soon fades. I think if you are not a bit nervous up a ladder then it means you are not aware of all the things that can (and do) go wrong- 'ignorance is bliss' as they say.
