    I finished cleaning the windows, and the lady came out to pay me the ten pounds due. she gave me eight pounds and said "I'll have to owe the two pounds until next time". I thought, and nearly said, would you go into Saisbury's and say that at the till, not bloody likely. I don't mind her owing the two quid, it's the assumption she made that angered me.

    Put her price up by £1 per clean. Blame rise in petrol cost, water cost, insurance cost, or that you want a new pair of shoes, whatever.

    I must admit when i was cleaning, i would give them the benefit of doubt the first time, but if they kept messing me about they would be dropped.

    Think you need to chillax. If they give you what they have then what's the problem? I suppose if they know you are coming then that is a bit different.

    The problem is they are only giving you part payment for the work you just did.
