    You may remember i had a customer rip me off last month and was adamant i quoted her differently than i did
    Anyway she rang me just now and asked could I do her upvc cladding round the back above conny
    I said no
    So she says oh i was asking because i want it done and last time you didn't clean my back windows (which i did trad pole and she watched me do it )

    I never swear at customers but i lost the plot
    " i tell you what love **** off" and put the phone down
    Have blocked her mobile number and will be doing the old dear next door on monday who i do the tops for (70 ish and still.does the bottoms herself)
    I only do it as she is next door to the other job
    I will go out of my way to do hers and be seen doing it

    I know it very hard at times not to lose it completely but I try to always remain cool when dealing with awkward customers and not swear and/or shout at them.

    Have to agree with Smurf mate don't bring yourself down to their level by letting em wind you up, easier said than done at times thought.
