    I clean for 2 doctors who live in a 6 bed house. Mr doctor has always gawped out the window, followed me round, pointed out blobs of dirt on sills etc. I've put up with it for about 2 years. They have just had a conny built, me and Mr doctor agreed a new price. I clean the house and new conny for the first time on Friday. As I was packing up Mr doctor comes out with £30 instead of £42. I look at him and say, 'do you want to go back in and get the right money!' Err, you haven't done the conservatory he says. 'Err, yes I have I say.' Lets go and have a look he says. FFS I shout. So we go and check that I have actually cleaned what I said I did. Then the cheeky b@stard put his hand in his pocket and pulls a load of notes out and says 'how about £40' Just give me the correct money and look for another window cleaner I say. I turned round and said, 'how much do you earn an hour, and you are trying to knock 2 quid off your bill, open the gates please.'

    Good on you. People who look down on you just aren't worth the effort
