    First time I have ever done that.

    this was a once a year customer but I did it cheap last year.

    So i cleaned the front last week and charged first clean price £10.

    Went today to do the back AND conservatory and its roof and said £20 which I know is cheap.

    Ohh you didn't charge that much last time. So i said it was cheap a year ago.

    Can you do it cheaper. So stupid me knocked a fiver off. But you get what you pay for. Anyway. Cleaned it and she start to moan...

    You missed this spiderweb. Me - yes can you see the electricity light under it... I don't want to electricute myself. Ohhh but the roof is still dirty.
    Where..
    On the sides -
    the side panels
    I wiped them but that's all.
    Ohh I wanted it really clean like last time.

    So i go get the ladder and rip my shoe... now I'm pissed off and my gut is SCREAMING to leave. So for the first time ever I just said to myself F IT and packed up and left.

    Feel better now. Hope it doesn't ruin my day.

    where did this term barterer start was it on this forum? we seem to go to great pains not to use "the grass roots terms" in case we offend. but truth is they are Not offended . the reason they want us to use carefully worded terms is jus so they have a leg up ,we are bowing to them ,but why should we? we are the ruling race here, if nowhere else

    better to be honest. only yesterday when out on the high street i spoke to my workers " you 2 go and do the accountants first, then the chinks house next door and by that time i will be with you"

    this was clearly understood

    It's just a friendly term we use as after all it is an open forum for all to see.
