    Recently i posted a thread telling of how i had to rescue a very young rabbit from a customers cat.

    Another time, a while ago, i was doing a customers house which was next to a field. I was busy minding my own business, doing the many upstairs windows, when i started to get the feeling i wasnt alone, that i was being watched. I turned round and there, at the fence, about 10' away from me, was about a dozen cows, all watching me intently!. Got a bit of a fright, as i never heard them approach!.[hr]
    Oh, and another one, not that long ago, i had finished doing this large country house, when the bloke who lived there came out asking if i knew anything about putting up coving!. I said i wasnt very good at diy, but was still, literally dragged into the house to see if i could suss out what he was doing wrong. He couldnt get the angles right for cutting the stuff!.
     
  4. When i was working on an estate in Knowsley they have pheasants everywhere and i got surrounded by about 30+ of them at the bottom of my ladder haha i will have to find the battery for my old phone to see if i still have the picture!

    I think the funniest one is when I turn up in my sign written van carrying ladders and a bucket with a bucket belt and squeegees and someone comes up and says " are you a window cleaner" ????

    Yeah, i have had that a few times, even when i am standing cleaning an upstairs window with my 34' pole.

    "are you a window cleaner?"

    Honestly, how do you answer that one?!.

    One of the strangest things Ive come accross whilst out door knocking for customers was this old man came to the door wearing a leotard, so I asked about his windows, he then mutters "ah wait there sweet heart" and disappears inside his house were I wait for about 5 minutes thinking hes getting changed and Ive got a deal, he then reappears clutching a fiver trying to pay me thinking Im his regular guy.
    Had this on the same estate an old guy answered the door with his trousers pulled real high dribble on his shirt etc so I asked the question again half heartedly were he angrily rejected my offer (no loss there) carrying on up the road the sweetest old lady chases me down the street (his wife) yes yes yes shes screaming so I go back hubby kept trying to come out she started yelling just F@@@ off in doors you c@@@ shes 80+ if a day so funny
