    I've literally lost count of the number of times I've cleaned **** off my shoes this week. Not just my shoes though. The wheels of my trolley, my hose, the back of my van, the floor mats in my van, my hands. The list goes on.

    It's not just customers gardens. It's paths, grass verges, communal grassy areas outside people's houses.

    What the hell is wrong with people. It's disgusting.

    I had enough at one house earlier, downed tools and ****** off part way through the job. I've sent her a message but she's not replied.

    Most of my customers are pretty good at picking it up and, now I have a bit more confidence, I'm telling new customers that they need to clean it up before I start work.

    Anyway, rant over.

    Anyone else had any (animal) poo-related problems this week?

    Edited to include the text I sent the customer. She's one of my wife's clients so I was perhaps a bit less stern than I might normally have been.

    I had an incident been cleaning the place for a year and never had issues with it before. As long as it's a one off then I let it go......but zero tolerance for gardens full of it. I do have a box of those plastic shoe covers in the van just in case.......:)

    Cheers. I popped home and cleaned up and then replied once I'd calmed down a bit. I got my mrs to check it before I sent it. The rest of the day was ok after that. I took my youngest son out with me for an hour or so which was fun.

    One of my houses has new people move in. They took me on but they have a dog that poops everywhere including the gravel drive :confused:, bugger me it's hard to see :specs. Last time I was there I was cleaning away and tip toeing past the :turd:, she came out and asked if I was ok. I said yeah I'm ok but I'm trying to dodge this :turd:. She promised that it would all be cleared up next time. We'll wait and see, if it's not cleared up she's dumped.
