    It's karma
    Went to do a custy who had been on holiday so i said I would do it today
    I drive 3 miles there and as i knock the door 2 other people turn up to view the house (i already am her windie for the new place when she moves and is a lot bigger so more dosh)
    She says oh not this time please so i drive off with the hump
    2 miles i drove and then she phones me really apologetic saying she was really embarrassed as she had no cash on her and panicked with the people there could i come back and she would go to cash machine (make it worth your while)
    £15 job done £25 in my hand
    Lucky i never got home or she was binned lol

    And 3 quotes done today and cleaned them at the same time so i reckon a moment of weakness is deserved to keep the balance

    Got 2 good 5* reviews on my facebook page today as well
    Karma
    Help an old dear out
    Have a good day
    And feel good about myself
    The money is irrelevant for the old dear as doing my bit for the older generation
    Smurf should understand as he is 172

    It used to annoy me how the kids treated the old folk when i was young
    Standing at the cenotaph on remembrance day in my army uniform side by side with people who saw and experienced horrific things to ensure the safety of our country and young lads walking past taking the piss
    We should all take more care of the older generation as we would expect it when we get to that stage of our lives
    If that means losing a couple of quid so be it
