    Best cancellation I ever had was for my handyman work just before christmas, where the lady of the (big) house called to cancel last minute because she had to do here christmas shopping. Thanks to her I was twidling my thumbs for the day, and out of pocket for a days labour just at the time we need it most. Thanks a bunch.

    My best cancellation ,come sacking was when I first started cleaning windows , there was this guy who ended up in hospital for 6 months , but I kept on cleaning his windows, when he finally came home he got his home help to tell me he wanted to see me , I went to his house , thinking I was going to get paid ,,,, got paid alright . But his next comment has made me laugh for years " son , he's your money , don't come back , good luck for the future " then he shut his door in my face ... (Poor sod is dead now .... Still make s me laugh ). His windows were filthy by the time he died .
