    The season has definitely kicked off here as well and it doesn't help when frank leaves on of his squeegees at a customers house :( But I did buy a business card holder which sticks on to the back of the van which is a bargain (£5 from Card Caddie) which is a bit of extra promotion and will hopefully siv out the potential customers & the time wasters............oh the time wasters.......... 'can you give me directions for.....' ........'that must keep you fit'......the joker 'Missed a spot....ha ha ha! (laughing to himself/herself) .......and the best one ......'are you a window cleaner?'

    I had 2 txts and a call after 10 o'clock last night, all wanting cleans this week. Not a hope in he'll I'm flat out. I'm sure some people just think we sit around whating for them to call, then get the hump when you can't fit them in. And it only took me a year to get to this stage. My old work mates told me I was a fool for leaving a steady income of next to nothing, where everyone was miserable.....

    Quite on the website front, just the normal trickle, however I did have 4 errrrr 'barterers' as we call them walk up, each house minging.

    'Can you do my windows?'

    'Sure but too busy today cant fit you in till next month. let me get your details and I can start you next month'

    'Oh, so you cant do it today?'

    'Not a chance luv, I am flat out this week'

    'Oh well never mind then'

    Yep, thought so!:rolleyes: That's how I sort the wasters from the customers.

    They keep coming in.
    When do you stop taking them. Have sorted the rubbish out & got rid & replaced with good ones but good ones still keep coming in. All round my area to. When to stop & say NO.
