    My most common is:

    'You missed a spot mate!'

    And Im like hmm, not funny.

    I also have this woman who seems to walk past a regular town centre job I do every week at the same time and she says:

    'Look! He's got his pole out!' or 'Look he's got his pole out in public'

    My guess is that she is a slag but its funny all the same

    I always get

    "That's got to be better than going up and down ladders all day"

    Which is true but still annoying when you've heard it four or five times already that week.

    "I bet you see some sights" that seems to be everyone's favourite. They must think I have got a camera on the end of my pole!!
