    Hey guys kinda new here but what annoys me are these middle aged blokes who think they can set up a ladder and go up it and clean windows, i have been doing this 8 years almost and the other day i was out walking my dog and a guy went up a ladder to clean windows in the high wind and fell backwards off the ladder. i thought him behind a window cleaner would have more sense, i felt sorry for the guy but then thought no i don't he should have used his common sense.

    or you get these window cleaners wet behind the ears working on there own walking on roofs, no one to foot them. in my eyes its stupid and then you never see them come winter.

    last but not least the worst window cleaners. i call em christmas scum. they start a round up back end of Nov to canvous houses to rob them which gives other ligit window cleaners a bad name.

    I wonder what the local competition made of me when I started? I didn't even have a car, just walked about with a ladder on my shoulder, now I am a full blown LTD company with employees, sweet WFP setups and more work than I can handle coming in.

    Wonder what they think now to what they thought then! :))
