    He is a local lad who i've clocked a few times around town, but he's been doing one of my neighbours for a while now and i just cant get my head around how he works and just wandered if it was me or do you lads think the same? Sorry for the shakey start to the vid

    Thats the only ladder he has, he doesnt even have the other half of it, and rope's it onto his roof rack, how he works with no boab or even a belt and pockets is beyond me? It must be a right pain.
    That scrim he uses must be drenched after a few windows but it doesnt stop him.

    I do next door and the rest of the road using wfp, one day i'm gonna have a chat with him just see what he's like

    well it seems a strange way of cleaning using a pole up a short ladder why don't he just use a longer pole if he is going to squeegee them ?

    Maybe easier for him that way as he can see what he is doing. Also going by his actions has been cleaning for quite a long time too.

    I've seen some bad windys in my time!! I bet there are more blade marks than clean window, let alone smears from his cloth. It certainly is NOT window cleaning by any measure.

    Only watched up until the 2nd window, he almost at the top of the ladder, leaning against gutters, I'd be poo'in my pants!
