    yep how fast can you get sacked...

    I got two new jobs last week ...drove to see them both....both not worth the effort to me but....hmmmm what do I do?

    anyway i went to the first one a council estate semi on monday to have a look....i wasnt even getting out of the car as the rain was really bad...i planned to drop some cards in the locality as she had told me on the phone the windy had retired...i always ask...

    went back tuesday and dropped the cards and called in and talked to the husband, i had already agreed to the wife and again to him that I could match the old price of £7 and so i had a chat and said i would be back tomorrow to clean it..

    but...i have a kinda floating text me service and so i got dragged somewhere else and so i phoned said I was sorry and will call back on friday as thursday was busy....

    come friday and two old jobs had texted me and so i planned my route according to that and another regular wanted them doing due the mess this weather has made...so it was two oclock when i was ready to go to the council estate house...just when that big grey sky decided to hail stone down and it was really heavy so it being a friday i headed for home ..

    I did text and explain the weather and said I would be back first thing monday but...a phone call later and she is getting her neighbors window cleaner to do them who comes regular....

    and me i feel upset because I lost a job I have never had.....but then again.....I didnt really want it in the first place...and of course nobody rung up from the fifty odd cards I dropped..

    and turns out the windy she had hadnt retired after all....it was two kevins from winsford who had fallen out and were taking each other to court..and her hubby explained how about four windys come on that estate and one lot of four to five lads...kinda glad i got sacked..

    as for the other new job...well her hubby had left her and he used to clean them...cant say i blame him leaving but thats another story..sorry but I havent had the time this week,..will call monday...assuming mrs j doesnt phone and get the wine out...:rolleyes:

    I never agree to price match, I just give my price. You are better off without them mate.

    They always fail to add up their windows properly. :whistle:
     
  8. My bad quotes seem to cancel out the good ones...........roughly.
