    Been out canvassing today picked up 8 homes but should of been more like 15,can never work out why you give a person a quote they are happy with and they tell you they want it doing but then they say i will have to ask the other half first,

    What is that all about or is it just me that has this problem

    i think once i walk away thats that job 90% of the time

    No No it happens to all of us, just clean all the customers you have got, then go to those other houses and say did you want your windows cleaned or no then mate?

    Most of the time they will say yes as your there with equipment.

    I get a lot of men saying oh I'll have to ask the misses... Sometimes the phone rings 2 mins later, a woman, hey you were just at the door I want my windows done!! ( who wears the trousers )

    Very rarely a woman will say I Gota ask my husband..


    I hate the ones you call to.. Clearly see the windows haven't been cleaned in a very long time.. And they tell you I need to think about it.. What is there to think about, your windows are stinking!!

    Also the other day had an aul boy say, the rain cleans my windows... Lol, I just said well you get them done quite often then but I don't think it's working.. Here's a card if it dosent rain again cheerio..

    Does no one else have a good laugh when our knocking doors?
