Just taken a job on at mates rates so my question is do any of you lads do the same?
I did but I tried to put the price up to £10 from £8 and they sacked me !!! Some effin mate eh ?
I told them I would do it at mates rates for a bit but they just took the pee .
Only good mates that do me favours. Saying that I should be starting a Connie in half an hour knocked her 25 quid off cos she missus mate fool that I am. Might not be today its hail stoning like mad.
Well I don't normally do mates rates to be honest but went to quote a job earlier only to find it was an x work colleagues son I knew when he was a wee boy. Anyway after a long chat going over old times for some unknown reason when giving the price on his 4 bed detach external house clean including the usual gutters in/out soffit, fascia, conservatory, windows and driveway clean I said " that's a mates rates price". Doh! to be honest I don't why I said it but at least I did not reduce the price by much.
Maybe I'm just losing my marbles :Image3:
Old people usually do Alan
yep got mates rates and family rates! lol
and when i want something doing from them i get it a lot cheaper too! or i do them for free and i get them to do work for free!! it works both ways!
