    Had a call to quote a gutter clear and 8 weekly window clean by one of our :ninja: friends on Wednesday. I gave him the price, which had barterer tax added and he didn't even quibble on the price. We agreed that I would do the work tomorrow morning and I bid him farewell (I didn't really, I flicked the 'V' below the door window and waved with the other hand). Any road, I get a text this morning saying that they were away for the weekend and they would get in touch when they return. Yeah like **** I thought! So, I text him back saying 'oh great, I've hired a specialist ladder to do the work on your house and now I'm going to be out of pocket. Can I suggest that you leave me access so that I can carry on with the work.' Guess what, he didn't return the text.

    I'm getting to that stage where I'm not going to even bother quoting for :ninja: as they are all more hassle than their worth.

    Oh, I have another gutter clear to quote tomorrow for a :ninja:, if he starts his 'too much' malarkey, I'm not going to say a word, turn round, get in my van and drive off :rofl:

    A while ago I let slip and told one "I'm fedup with your sort" to which he replied "don't be like that” in a calming voice.

    Lets hope I never need life saving surgery as he may get his own back and chop me manhood off :D

    We are lucky in the Cotswolds, they aren't allowed here, they get turned back at the border.
