    I was in 2 minds whether to turn up tbh. Like a fool I decided to go and quote it. It was the size of 3 connys put together at least and minging. The price will be £*** I say. I added a bit of smelly house tax on top :sick:. Wait for it........"can you do it any cheaper?" Err no. "We have had quotes that are a lot less than yours." Get them to do it then, goodbye.

    I'm getting to the stage where if I hear an Asian accent on the other end of the phone I'm going to just hang up.

    they Almost slipped up letting you hear the telltale accent, normally theyre good at faking a friendly middle england voice . nontheless you still fell for it .

    full marks to you that you didnt get the job though

    I tend to avoid anyone who starts the conversation "hello please"

    I'm not racist, have a mixed race niece and nephew, love them to bits.

    However....

    Every single Indian customer on my round is extremely fussy and very very tight with money, even when I know for a fact that they are well off. It must be there culture, they expect jobs done for cheap,

    One of my customers (who was Indian) cancelled because I wasn't there long enough to earn the £10 I was charging. I said 'but the job is perfect' he said 'yes but it's taken you 10 minutes, I'm not paying £10'

    I've noticed it must be a cultural thing, no other culture seems to be as stingy...

    It is definitely a culture thing
    I have a couple of sikhs on my books who are completely different
    It seems to be the muslim culture imo

    Don't have these issues, everyone is white, but I am in the Cotswolds, think they turn them back at the border?
