    I cleaned a customer this weekend and left, a hour later I got a call saying that she want to stop for winter so I should cancel, 20 minutes later I got ANOTHER call from the daughter, she said ignore my mother.. I want to re-hire you, just keep cleaning my windows please..

    Has anyone else been fired and rehired the same day..

    If it was a few months then I would have just left it but this seemed to be a miscommunication.

    Haha I've had one customer say I was too expensive (website), even though the price I gave her was incredibly low... She then went shopping for a "better deal" and called me to say could she change her mind? Most people shop around BEFORE they cut their connections to people but obviously not this one.

    I was hired and fired once without actually doing the job.

    I had canvassed this house, and the nice little old lady who lived there asked me if I could go back that afternoon, as she was just going out. When I returned in the afternoon, she told me that her old window cleaner, who she hadn't seen for months, had turned up and had cleaned them!

    I went back to collect last night and the money was hidden where it alway is, so I think I will just keep cleaning them for now.
