    I penned in a 2 monthly today, big job. I drove 5 miles just for this one house. I gets there and start to open the doors and the bloke comes out. Here we go I thought. He says 'I think we'll leave it this time. We had the builders here last week and I decided to clean them.' I'm thinking bull. He then says 'I only did the bottom ones.' I'm thinking, well the frigging tops will need doing. I said I'd driven over especially, 'sorry he says.' I'm on the verge of dumping but bit my tongue, I says call me when you want them doing and I'll try and fit you in. Ooh err, he starts flapping and asked me to call ahead when I'm round again. These people are millionaires and put me on 2 monthly because of the recession a few years back. Bloody cocked my afternoon up that did.

    Rant over....

    That's why I always txt the night before. Saves any hassle. A lot of people say that if you txt it gives them the chance to cancel, but as you've found at they will still cancel when you are there if they feel like it.
