    I get where old school window cleaners do this, but ive come across a few modern(newish) window cleaners, who dont really care, and maybe even say hi to you and then get on with there work.

    I had a situation once where the house opposite had builders working on it. They were talking and pointing my way. Then one of them came across and 'identified' me as the window cleaner who was having an affair with his wife (not the language he used but you can guess what he said), and that he was going to 'do me'.

    I asked where he lived, and when he told me it transpired that I didn't work in his neighbourhood. Phew!

    If you ever do get any threats don't get involved but do report it to the police so that its on record. then if it does come to blows you have got your story straight from the beginning.

    Sounds like a case of mistaking you for someone else
