    I've just been out and done my shops. Now I'm heading to clean a load of domestics but I've got an old lady on this work who every time I turn up thinks I owe her a favour. I don't even feel like going there today, do or spew? It's a £6 bungalow but she try's to keep me there a good hour plus vat. With things like can you put my wheel chair in my car.

    thats a tough one if you dump her she might bad mouth you around the area , id do her house at the end of the day last job thats if its not to out of your way and make an excuse that you have to be home by a time , you would think she would have a carer or some home help

    She does, thing is their paid by the hour so it's obvious that she is trying to get something for nothing. I don't care if she bad mouths me to be fair. I've got loads of customers who look forward to seeing me and make sure I'm paid

    As H said. Its good to help here and there but some take the piss. ~Just be honest. You have a set time to clean x amount of houses, you don't mind doing additional jobs but you have an hourly rate of £20. If she would like to keep you for an hour then that's your fee. She'll soon stop asking :D
