    You know how it is, you have the pole in your hand scrubbing away and a builder walks past with he's mates "that's cheating where is your ladder"

    Erm, excuse me jack the lad you try holding this thing and looking up at the sky all day as opposed to wiping a rag around the glass.

    Not to take anything away from traditional window cleaners! I can imagine those ladders get pretty heavy come 3 o'clock



    Anyway what's the most patronising thing some arrogant passer by has ever said to you??

    Last week, some guys drove past and shouted
    ' you've missed a bit at the top'
    So i turned around to face them with my pole and squirted the water from the brush into the car window and soaked him. :rofl:

    Usually when I'm working on a busy street.........

    Passer by- "Excuse me?....

    Me- (takes head phones out) ...yes?

    Passer by - "are you a window cleaner"

    Me- no sorry. (Puts head phones back in and carry on WFPing)

    It's good for a laugh sometimes. I give it a few seconds before I stop again, take head phones out, tell them I'm kidding and ask how can I help. :)
