    I am considering dumping £130 worth of work. A total of 3 jobs....

    Give me the :thumbsup: or :thumbsdown: chaps.

    Here goes....

    1) 4 weekly worth £35. Often cancels due to being away. Has coded gates (I know the number, but he doesn't know that) and could give me the code so I can carry on. Out in the sticks. I texted last night and he replied cancelling at 11:30 this morning. I had to drive past his house today, the gates were open and the cleaners car was there.

    Dump or keep?

    2) 4 weekly worth £35. I took her back on a few months ago after I dumped her for being a messer a few years back. First clean all good, away the second clean. Rang her last night, she didn't want them doing because she's going on holiday next week.

    Dump or keep?

    3) 12 weekly worth £60. Done it for years, it's a farmhouse with a big courtyard full of holiday lets, it's just down the lane from Mr Cancel above. I have never put the price up :confused: over the years, and she refuses WFP. Rang last night and she wanted to know how much it would be if I left her house which is connected to the job as her husband was going to do just the house but me do the rest. I said I'd knock a tenner off. "So you think our house is 1/6 of the work then." she says. Well it's worth a tenner to me I say. "Ok, do the lot tomorrow and we'll have a chat about the price tomorrow. She weren't in and I didn't get paid. Now if I were to quote her house on its own, would she be happy paying more than a tenner? Of course she wouldn't.

    Dump or keep?

    I will go with whatever the forum decides, fire away chaps.

    I'd fk the first 2 off tuffers, but not sure on the 3rd one. I can tollerate a bit of **** if the moneys there, but if itsnot, then its probably a good move to free that time up and replace it with something more profitable. I think you know what you've gotta do.
