    Know how you feel Davie boy my day is resigned to catching up on bookwork as my starter motor has decided only to start when it feels like it and not really any hills where I'm supposed to be working it helps having an apprentice son working in a garage though :)

    Nevermind mate, theres always tomorrow. I went out on the glass today as I want to get one more clean for my monthly round in before christmas so I'm pushing it hard at the moment. The weather was $h*t in the morning, but got a bit better in the afternoon.

    Dumped my first customer today, feels so good.

    hmmmm yep tolish...i nearly dumped one...nearly..but i far too nice....

    she wanted me to trim her bush...:rolleyes:well okay trees but doesnt sound as good....so i couldnt be arsed last clean and said i will do it when the leaves have gone...so i took my petrol hedge trimmer and edging shears....but when the husband told me what he wanted doing....its a bow saw job.....and really nowhere to lean my ladders as the tree is in next doors garden so thats a use for my multi ladder...all of which i didnt have...

    some women are a bit ....er....bossy...and she tried to have a go...but i just stood there took it like a man and said im a windowcleaner as my main job i dont carry every tool with me....you should have seen the face...i dont think her husband ever ever would dare to answer back..

    anyway ...she didnt ask me inside to do the doors i usually have to do....she didnt open the velux i usually have to do...and i quietly knocked for my money but decided to do next doors and wait awhile...

    and i dare not say anything about the female sex cause they lurk amongst us but...she answered the door as nice as pie...

    and later i bumped into her again...nice as pie....

    funny creatures.....except shazzy and beccy etc...of course.....:rolleyes:

    i got the job off her ex husband....he was a lucky man...
