    Cleaning a small cons. today.Customer was sitting with a couple of her friends round a table nearby wile I was taking care of business.Top of glass was a stretch so I used her 2 big flowerpots she had kindly left positioned perfectly to reach.After picking myself up lifting my change off the ground checking her pots were good and saying sorry with blood coming out of my elbow I finished the clean. :Image13: You have been warned beware of killer flowerpots :Image2:

    Invest in a step ladder and you'll avoid looking like such an idiot.
    How professional can one look standing on plantpots?

    Health and safety? Not so much.

    happened to me once - shhh :p

    the customer had her bin just under the window I couldn't reach - so I thought it would replace my A ladder - well it didn't . I landed quite bad

    always use the ladder since

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Maybe wise for the future to get yourself a long enough pole so you don't need to stand on pots or mess about with ladders [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=10.5pt]Was very funny though so thanks for sharing....Lesson learnt methinks :Image9: [/SIZE]
