    Had a first clean to do i told the women to leave her gate open she text back saying okay went their and gate was locked so ice just dropped her, i dobt need customers like this, also had a few people that cancelled me saying they will do it theirself, really they just used me for a first clean lol but am upti 98 customers now and on friday it will be 3 months since trading. Ive been lazy aswellll i should have about 130 customers by now, ive also toke about 20 people off my round due to bad payers etc. i want a round with good people , no messing me about thats why am strict with taking people off. Has to be done

    I had a few jobs that didn't pay for a couple of cleans but now have set up a standing order as they didn't realize how hard it would be to pay. I also had a lady who ran out for the first two cleans with the money who is now ignoring the door some people buck their ideas up and some loose interest. It's hard to know which is which after one clean

    Ive only dropped 1,2 cos of the payments.... they were druggies though.. drugs come first not the window cleaner :p

    Ive got 1 person im cleaning tomorrow he owes me £6.00 but im still doing him 2nd time :) Cos i know hes a decent lad and he will pay

    I know which customers are good and which customers are bad

    Plus i chucked more people of due to access at the back... i dont want to be turning up at a job and it turns out ot be a no job... thats no good to me.

    I want to go out their each day and do 15-20 jobs that are all waiting to be cleaned :p
