    Had a lady call this morning to say her windows have already been cleaned by someone else so no longer required my services as the chap canvasing gave her a cheaper price and cleaned them there and then. The little cheeky devil :Image13:

    Anyway I said "no problem and thanks you for letting me know"

    Has this ever happened to anyone else? :Image10:

    smurf i had worse, i was cleaning and they were knocking the doors saying they could go 2 quid lower than what i was charging. talk about a risky business. i caught one of the ladder monkies red handed, i asked him what his game is and he gave me a load of abuse so i chased him down the road. he dropped his ladders so i got hold of them and bunged them in a hedge with brambles. few days later i had calls from the customers id cleaned and they tried to steal off me saying there windows were smeared. strange how its the ones i was cleaning and they knocked, i went to investigate and someone had smeared something on the front windows. think it was something greasy but dunno what it was. i redone them and said if they come up smeared again call the police.

    Seems to be getting like that here too as everyone is trying to undercut everyone else which does no one any favours if you are trying to run a legitimate business.
