    Finished nice and early today, so I decided to leaflet. Got a call while in the same road. Got there, gave them the spiel. Four beds, Conny, £20. Oh that's a lot they say, we've had another quote quite a bit lower. How much £10 I ask. No, £14 they say. Does he have public liability I ask. What's that they ask. Well, if he smashes your car with his gear you'll get paid for repairs. Oh, we'll let you know.

    Picked up another £20 job elsewhere so I'm happy.

    Work coming in every day ATM. My Mom always said I should be a salesman.

    A tip for newbies, try and get a price of what the potential custy was paying before out of them. I try it and most the time they spill the beans. That will give you an idea if they are tight arses or not. Also show them your gear (that sounds wrong :D) in your van. Explain what tool does what (that sounds wrong too) to show you're a pro at this game.

    I'm waffling on now aren't I!?
