    then last Thursday I had an appointment with a customer for an inside clean. Actually it was scheduled to Tuesday but the customer asked to wait till she got better . Was kinda worried but did it anyway since I would only be back 14 days later. Then Monday night just before me and my brother was about to go to the shooting range, I Started feeling really bad:confused: . Now outta commission ! for lousy 45 pounds ....
    Morale : if your custys ill , DONT go inside !!! :doh:

    I think I've mentioned it in another thread but, a big alcohol gel dispenser is essential on this job. Get a biggun like a normal hand soap dispenser, and keep it in one of your cup holders. Use it everytime you shake a cuties hand, and just before lunch and you are sorted. I never leave it to chance anymore.

    Ask daveyboy1 what i have in the van lol! I bet me and you would get on well mate. Same wave length and all that.

    As for being ill. 2 years ago i had the norovirus and still worked. I felt really bad after i had finished the day as i thought about all the slips i posted with germs on lol. Highlight was reeling in my hose on the floor and threw up all over it. Good job it wasn't my electric one. Would have got splattered with it lol.

    That's what spurred me to do it mate. Past two years I have had a bout of puking. And the amount of people off work Ill that cough into the change they are counting out for you.:sick:

    I use the Jangro stuff, the fumes are enough to get you high.

    I had the norovirus for 2 weeks about 3/4 years ago.

    By about the 10th day I was crying and asked to be knocked out. My ribs were so so painful and my teeth hurt from all the acid from stomach. Not good at all.
