    One of the reasons I love being a windie is how hilarious some days can be.

    I can't help but laugh when I think of some days.

    Like the time I was cleaning an old bungalow with an old bloke called Bill.

    He always used an old wooden pointer and refused a new one whenever we were ordering new gear.

    So as I come round to help him finish the back I can hear "help, help" coming from the garden.

    I rush round thinking he's hurt himself and there he was.

    One of the rungs had snapped and he was wedged in the hole. Ladder still stood up with his feet dangling just above the floor.

    "Don't just bloody stand there. Get me out, I've been here 10 minutes " he said.

    He was there for another 10 aswell 'cos I was laughing to hard to help him.

    Anyone else got a funny story from the job?

    Post them here.

    My fav was the day I started, spent a couple of hours at bosses house learning basics then off we go the first job.

    I go up the ladder and onto the balcony of this town house.

    I am so focused on doing a good job I see nothing but the window in front of me.

    Now, imagine if you will, Nora Batty and Uncle Arthur, getting it on in their birthday suits as that is what caught my attention next as I heard riotous laughter as they fell off the couch and legged it to the bedroom!

    I calmly did the window and headed down ladder to light a smoke and get over the trauma.

    'Were those two dirty old buggers at it as usual?' The boss asks!

    To this day I still have nightmares about it!

    well I er...kinda dont understand....today went to quote one it was in the middle of nowhere but thats the way it goes and it was really tiny....two up at the front and two up at the back..she wrote such a lovely email..I cant get a window cleaner ...help..

    so I thought and they were really bad so I put through a price of ten pounds first clean five normally and then cursed my softness as I dont really want it but ....you never know...

    and as I walked back to my car I couldnt help notice the white van on the verge with the pointer on top obviously a windie and thought to myself ...its not that hard to find one..

    tonight got the reply...thanks for your fast response we have had a few quotes from window cleaning companies and we have decided to go with the one that charges eight pounds a month....

    yep I should have listened to da smurf....:)

    I thought its xmas er easter so me wants a holiday...everyone else seems to be off so I got stuck in to day to finish....

    first job a roof tile replacement my mate is oh so insistent I do...

    hmmm nope too old and wise...

    next job a roof tile replacement ...sorry ...sat nav says no find it...

    next job....well the merc was on the drive but no one in so me happy to get stuck in and on the way out looked at another in there but they were out and had been slow to pay last time so thought ...naff off..

    next a couple of my monthlys still to be done due to the bad weather last week...really :turd:

    hmm everyone home apparently wish they had gone away but sometimes happens...

    then the afore mentioned quote and then thought head for home....ya forgot one...booooo and she was texting me...
    yes an old custy but a new house what a stinker to finish on but at six...yes six ...in the evening ...I head for home..

    took my ladders off managed to avoid mrs disability next door and thought holiday time...

    and then comes the text from the one I had left earlier ..can you clean my windows..and then the email from another who I had left as she hadnt paid me....oh I give up...

    maybe take it easy tomorrow...early finish...on with the ladders.:rolleyes:

    yes when I went to shut the gate to finish guess what was behind the gate....

    I have found the new council estates now....all this help to buy has made them all move onto the brand new houses....and so I had to go and clean one and as I drove around the corner were ten kids shooting around on scooters...hmmm just love the school hols..

    so determined to finish for a break today I shot off home picked up the wife and dog.....and sent her for a walk down the canal whilst I did the one I missed yesterday and same again for another.

    and back home took my ladders off ...and yep ..message on the phone...:rolleyes: I DONT THINK I WILL GET TIME OFF....

    it was from a cleaning company whom I have windowcleaned for before but they havent used me for a year plus so I er ...didnt get that message...and I also couldnt hear my mobile ringing twice...

    so I go on email....can you cut my grass as I have hurt my knee....oh well suppose that doesnt mean cleaning windows..:D

    Custom I go to always leaves money out in a little bag. My mate says have you collected the money yet. My reply no I can't find the bag. He then says maybe this is it. Picks it up & says its warm. The lady was in which is why she hadn't left the money out & he'd picked up the bag she had just used to clear up after the dog. I was in tears.
