    Im in the process of giving up my lettings manger job to become a window cleaner lol, honestly would u digrade someone who said they were a cleaner or a dustman, no, so why feel embarrassed when u say what u do.
    I honestly think the only time i would lie about what i do is if i were a traffic warden or in politics!!!!

    Makes absolutely no difference what you do. You have a job, that's what matters.

    Majority of my friends don't work, but they will always say fair play to me for getting off my butt!

    I have some friends that stayed on at school, went to uni and are now working in subway.. Who feels embarrassed?

    Window cleaning is dirty hard work, but you will be or should be earning a lot more than the majority of the people these days, so you shouldn't feel embarrassed! I actually love it!
