    Hi All. Been reading on the forum for a while now and enjoy learning from others. I've been a shiner for 40 years this year. Due to a work related injury and follow up surgery the last eight have been wfp as I could no longer work from ladders. When I made the switch I wasn't very confident that windows could be cleaned thoroughly this way. How wrong I was. I work with a 25ltr trolley and I'm still learning and picking up tips 8 years in. I look forward to continuing to learn and maybe help others with what I've learned. Best wishes to all

    Thanks for your welcoming replies. Yes 40 years is a fair old time, but I don't know where the time's gone. Just sees to fly by. Like most of us who have been in the trade for a while there are tales to tell. Dealing with the public can be challenging at times. My dad, worked most of his life with a team of people who he got to know, but when he was made redundant late in his working life and changed to a job where he had to deal with the public, he really struggled to keep his cool. There is certainly a lot of truth in the expression, 'There's nowt so strange as folk.'
