    So I had a successful day canvassing today managed to bag 5 customers and three of them regular 6 weekly.

    I take down all the details, mob numbers, name and address obviously, and any notes wether need ladders and wether needs a txt or not the night before.

    I flyer and canvass at the same time and write all the details on the flyer at the bottom of the pile. A few streets towards the end of the day I realised I had somehow posted that flyer with all the details on through someones door!!!!

    Lol I had narrowed it down to being one street where that flyer must have been and knocked on nearly all the doors that I had already knocked on canvassing. Chinese woman opens the door I see the flyer she picks it up realises whats happened because she is reading all the customers and prices and addresses and gives it to me laughing her **** off. I asked her if she needed a window cleaner for the crack.

    I'm so glad I don't have a boss. ''erm sorry chief I got 5 customers but all there details are on a leaflet through someones door''


    Best of luck to everyone in the new year.

    You don't go clambering over gates too then find out the fence at the side has been taken down like frank, fred or whatever his name is. Now that can only happen to cheapncheerful surely? :laugh:

    Took me all day to get that list, my heart dropped when I realised I had posted it through someones door.

    Funny thing is I was knocking on doors asking for my leaflet back that I had just posted. I was like mr Bean today.

    My eyes lit up when I saw it on the floor blank side up with all the notes on it.

    To prevent this happening again you should use a notepad:)
