    At 3:30 the phone number of a job I've only done once so far shows on the screen. Last month they rang to say don't come as they wouldn't be there. No problem I said, I'll see you next time.

    Hello, is that the window cleaner? Yes it is. "Are you coming to clean our windows today?" Err no, I'm a week behind at the moment and have you down for next Tuesday and I said that I would call the night before if you remember. "Oh, we've been waiting in all day for you." I said I'd ring the night before if you remember. "I don't think we will be in next Tuesday." Don't worry, just leave the gate unlocked and I'll carry on.

    Where do you think this is heading? :D

    It's a nice little job as it's between 2 other houses I clean, but I feel a dumping is imminent :thumbsup:

    Wow, been waiting in all day for a good tuffering :rolleyes:

    So annoying when they dont want it doing when u are due and then say that they are waiting for u when they presume u are coming.

    I can a text this morning and i quote.... "Hi paul this is julie from blar blar st can you leave windows till end of month and the lasy next door about 5 more weeks please" wtf strange that some people suddenly think you can do their windows whenever it suits them.
