    I'll be honest mate, my quote stays the same regardless, but I will treat her better than most, chat a little longer, and maybe go the extra mile a bit by doing the odd extra.

    Ive got an oldy, mary her name is. One of the nicest ive met so far. Did her windows for the second time last friday and she just stands and watches me the whole time, not that i mind cause we have a bit of banter. But first time it was oh can you just take my wheelie bin out, and last time she wanted me to clip abit of gutter back togethor because it was leaking. Didnt really mind doing either but im worried next time its going to be something bigger haha..
