    Best rid of them tenchy :thumbsup:

    I had one of those days today. Had a call last night, lady wanted a quote. I said I'd quote on my way to work. I get there at 8:15, price it up and get it. I cleaned them there and then. As I was cleaning next doors came out and asked me to take them on too. As I was cleaning next doors the next doors came out and asked me to take them on too. Result. It's a small cul-de-sac with about 10 houses and apparently no window cleaner has been seen for years. I popped a leaflet through all the others houses. Would be nice to get some more and I could drop a few of my dross jobs :)

    Apart from that the only other event was leaving my A frame and bolt hook at a job and having to drive bloody 2 miles back to get them :mad:

    Oh and I forgot me sarnies too. Had to come home on the way through to another area :(

    Everyone has a first day moment now and then, even after 10years. I think I have more than most to be honest :thumbsdown:
