    Last job of the day. Detached house, not very big. Finished cleaning the windows, just put my gear back in the van, next door neighbor pulls up unloading her shopping. Comes over to me and say's "is this you, pointing to her side door (white upvc)"? Few drips on it from my brush, as I have gone round the side of my customers house to clean the top bathroom window. So I looked at it and said, "the drips probably are mine, but nothing to worry about its pure water" She goes on saying her door is filthy, so I said "not from me, in fact ur door is very clean, only the sill at the bottom is dirty". The pure water won't make any difference I told her.

    She said it's filthy are you going to wipe it? I told her straight, "No I'm not" the dirt on ur sill is existing and has nothing to do with me. The water on ur door will dry spotless.. She went on and on, and I just said no I'm not going to wipe it. She said, doesn't matter leave it, I walked away nodding.

    Guys her door was spotless, her door sill was filthy and tried to blame me for the dirt on her sill. Also her door was not even soaked, probably at the most 20 or so drips.

    No doubt she was trying it on.

    You guys ever had anything like it?

    I knew her game, but let her say all she needed to say until I said "No I'm not going to clean it" I was hoping she was going to ring the office (my van is all signed up with contact details) just so i could have the privileged in telling her it was me she tried to have a go at, when got home. Probably the time of the month.

    I have a glass roof that I clean and use steps to get access as it is tight against the neighbours fence. Trouble is they have grown pear trees on the other side and my hose, the orange one that goes up the pole touched the top of them. She flew right off the handle and said I could of killed her trees and they were really expensive. I said what about birds and insects landing on them are going to blame God and me if they die. Some people just have no idea. Made me jump a couple of times as she kept coming out moaning.

    I think flats are the worst when the one below dont want them cleaned

    I'm not going on her property. As I turned the corner to reach the side windows, some spray from my brush must off gone on to her side door.
