    so i have damaged my ribs and they hurt a lot
    Get up at 8 on a sunday morning to do a new job i had arranged for today so it doesn't interfere with my plans for the week
    Get there bang on 9am like arranged
    Cars on drive
    Blinds shut
    No answer
    Knocked and rang several times
    No answer
    *******
    I obviously have nothing better to do on a sunday than waste my bleedin time
    Thinking of charging her for wasted time
    Only 1 minute drive but still takes the piss

    take a long deep breath[ well not in your case if ribbs hurt] and go back at eleven.

    approach this like youre an insect, you go to where a lettuce leaf was yesterday and ready to eat but it isnt there, now youv got to hang around case another drops in - this analogy is absolutely Nothin to do with you ,i was watching an insect in my nephews terrarium

    She was a facebook jobbie
    Misread that one as i can usually spot a waster
    Definitely think i get a better quality of customer from canvassing rather than someone seeking a windie on facebook
    Never used to have a problem but i think maybe they have to resort to facebook as run out of local windies to do the job
    Hitting the canvassing more nowadays

    One of the ones I got that cancelled I should have realised, as she said she tried two others who refused the job.

    What happened to your ribs Dave?

    On jobs like that it's best to phone first to let them know you're on your way before you turn up. Even though they have already aggreed a date & time the door bell may not work, they maybe out walking a pet or ppl can just forget or something comes up out of the blue and they don't let you know.
