    one of my worst was i was doing a one off insides for a german couple , big old house . it was about 9 a.m. and as i wiped around the frames id built up a big blob of cobwebs on the tip of my rag. well i flicked the rag and the blob let go and dropped- right into a large jug of fresh orange juice on the kitchen table. what could i do? not a minute later the man of the house comes and carries the jug away into the breakfast room ,

    bet it tasted lovely!

    I smashed a ceramic fish once doing the insides in their indoor swimming pool
    Didn't want to say anything so put the 3 pieces back together back on the window sill
    It was in winter so I don't reckon they would have noticed for a while
    Probably blamed on the kids by then
    .lol

    that was funny ,and particularly smelly too. the customer had already previously told me his Rhodesian ridgeback " can sh/t for England "
    what made me decide to use his hat to mop up the foul plop from off my rungs ? was i bitter ,yeh right i was
    i always chuckle to myself when i look over to where his sh/tty beanie hat lay on a shelf - and its gone.

    er...dont tug to hard on wooden gates either....its okay i managed to shove the handle back on ...until the owner wants to move the wheelie bin out and it will come off in his hand...:whistle:

    i did that a while back as well and the owner was on the other side....lucky for me ...he was just about to replace the gate...oops

    and take your own tools...i lost ten minutes today trying to get the head back on a brush...:rolleyes:
