    This happened a couple of months back . Cleaning windows as normal . Lady asks can I do hers quoted £10 then did it the nexted day .would normally charge more for first clean but window's wasnt that bad .happy days . Shw wanted them done every 1 month . Come back 1 month later to see two window cleaners just finishing up on that house . I finish my days work then text her .*was going to clean your windows to day but two window cleaner s were already doing the job have I misunderstood or have I done anything wrong * the text back was *no nothing wrong just a mix up with the window cleaners*
    I know the lady doesnt live there but her dad does and apparently gets confused.shesaid shell sortit out and let me know . never heard off her again so guess shes stuck with them.i no I did I good job and im sure other guys havent undercut they seem good lads . Proper van . Unifroms. Proper price.
    Never had a problem before but maybe time to invest in a uniform.? I feel that was the only down side.......

    you would think she would tell the other guys to stop them, as she has organised to get them cleaned with someone else.
    her father may not know and let them do them after canvassing.

    Its well worth having a uniform IMO. Mine is just branded polo shirts, and hoodys in the winter, simple and cheap. It makes you look a bit more legit,but for me I would get pissed off very quickly having to find something to wear every morning.

    I had one clean once and couldnt figure out why they were so clean everytime but I just cleaned em again..

    yes the wife had her window cleaner and hubby had his me....cheapie got the push..

    well I wouldnt argue with my wife either...

    also kinda similar...used to do one which was split into upstairs downstairs...

    upstairs I agreed what a bast ard the husband was ...

    downstairs I agreed what a ***** the wife was...

    but as long as both paid me ...who cares..real life can be funny sometimes..

    at least if the other windies let her down dassir1 she will have kept your number..:D
