    Hate doing shops! A customer of mine asked me if I could clean the wins shop she works at in a busy town. Parking is a ball ache and they want it doing inside and out. They have a big display of wine in the window, I feel a Frank moment might happen if I take that one on. My advice is if you've got loads of shops together then great, if you have one or two dotted about, they are a PITA.

    Definitely don't do what i did in blockbuster a few years ago
    I was doing the inside just before they opened and was standing on one of those round step thingies
    Stepped off it straight into my bucket emptying the complete contents onto the floor
    Luckily it was the tiled bit near the entrance not the carpeted bit
