    Quoted a woman to clean her fascias once the scaffolding came down after her roof was done by the council
    Looked just like green mould patches
    Adams0211 agreed as he came round to see me while i was there today

    Anyway the patches turned out to be some sort of glue or similar covered in dirt and muck from the roofers

    After a good scrub and a few choice words to myself (or maybe out loud as i do tend to talk to myself) i decided to get the ladders off and scourer or magic sponge wouldn't touch it

    I showed the customer and she said just do the best you can
    I wasn't happy charging her for the job as it looked exactly the same as when i turned up to do the job

    Took the tenner for doing her windows and then realised that the front one i did above the shared archway to the back was actually her neighbours window

    Hour and a quarter for a tenner

    Not a happy bunny and having a nice beer now to get over it

    Anyone else got any disaster stories??

    I'm gonna top that daveyboy

    Went to a quote, parked, walked round the house and back to the van. Two wannabee coppers (Community protection officers) one putting my info in her machine.

    Me: Come on luv, I been her 2 minutes, it says no return in 2 hours.
    Her: That bay might, this one is Permit Holders only.
    Me: Oh, my bad didn't spot the difference.

    And with that she ceases what she's doing, and I get in my van.
    Her partner then walks up and decides he's joining the conversation.

    Him: Yeah, so DO ONE!!
    Me: :eek::eek: You what??
    Him: You heard me, do one.
    Me: You need to learn how to talk to people pal, you don't have authority to shout orders mate!
    Him: I'm in charge of this road so what I say goes!
    Me: Good luck mate, you still need to learn how to talk to people!
    Him: Come see me after work when I'm out of uniform and I'll f*****g show you how I talk to people!
    Me: I look forward to it!

    Took his badge number and proceeded right to the police station and have lodged an official complaint about his threatening behavior. Will see what comes of that.

    You would think a city official would be better trained than to be dumb enough to threaten people in the street. Oh well!

    And before you all go on about grassing blah blah blah, what else can you do? he's a plastic copper, only way to deal with it is get him done by his own. :mad:
