    recently iv been dropping some of my work,the awkward jobs .this has allowed me to let in much easier jobs to fill the gaps.
    i wrote a short letter to each ex customer explaining that "new insurance rules means uv got to go" and quite enjoyed posting these off. knowing that these folk are now history
    or so i thought!
    first i get a late night pleading call on my answerfone "is it your lads thats the problem,,,,if so u can come on your own and clean my windows,just turn up,no need to knock,see you soon.... many thanks ,,Audrey "

    next its a call, "youre very late is there a problem?"

    i wrote you And your neighbour a letter explaining its over . "we never got a letter"
    i defo wrote
    "well if we didnt get the letter we are still on your round so when are you coming?"....

    then yesterday ,the call. "im in East mews cottages on East hill when are you coming?"
    iv not ever cleaned east mews cottages
    "oh yes you have ,im opposite the art gallery "
    i know it ,but there must be some mistake ...
    "no mistake,youre still cleaning windows right?"
    yes, so east mews cottages you say ?
    i can tell you the only house along that side of the road on east hiill i cleaned was a ferrkin great place,number 83 its 3 storey great big grey hoos

    "well thats me "
    i wrote you a letter and thats no flippin cottage
    "i never got it,,,,, so cant u just come ?"

    yeh rite!

    Glad I'm not the only one to send out such letters.

    That said, I have had a few try to twist my arm to return. That is always a bit awkward.

    Only problem i have with these letters is i am so close with the customers i feel sorry for telling to go somewhere else :(, but i cant serve all being a onemandshow, and dont want to employ.
