    What time do you think is an exceptable time to start cleaning windows? I'll be starting at 9.00 but may want to start earlier some days.

    I pretty much always start at 8-8.30, nearer 9 in the winter. Most customers dont mind, you're only really there early for one a day, and you learn whivh ones dont like to be first. Weekends, if I have to work them, I dont start before 9... T o be fair, because of Friday ***hts it normally nearer 9.30,,,,

    I start around 9 to avoid rush hour/school run mums etc. Have been known to work til about 7 in the winter and 8 in the summer. Had to do a job for a mate the other day which was a nandos in a shopping centre and it had to be done after closing time(11pm) but the jobsworth security guard said I had to wait until the cinema next door was closed dues to hoses etc...so a 1230 finish......I was gonna spark the **** out :)
