    Had a call about a month back to price up an existing customers mothers house up so i went round gave her
    a price etc and agreed on £10 for glass , frames , sills etc .

    just txt her saying im running late and i will be with her tomorrow .
    i get a txt back saying oh sorry my other window cleaners have started again 3 weeks ago and i have had them back
    as they only charge £5 for the same as im doing !!!!

    now bare in mind there is 2 of them so 1 house they earning £2.50 each .........................WTF???????? HOW ON EARTH AM I SUPPOSED TO COMPETE WITH THOSE RIDICULOUS PRICES ????

    Well at least when they go missing again next time il tell her nah ur ok i cant fit you in .

    also another customer a friend of mine well his wife sent me a message on fb last night saying when can you fit me in to clean my
    windows ?? I said well sometime in the week as i have to work around the wifes hrs and the kids being at school .
    She replies with " I would prefer thursday or friday " or the weekend .
    I say "it depends if the wife is at work the weekend wether or not i can fit you in "
    So she says " Ok I will get Stuart to get up the ladder then "

    So im like wtf is going on ???? why do customers think they have you over a barrel ???
    at this rate i will just end up dumping all the custies and get a job in a bakers or something ffs i am seriously having enough of being messed around by feckin eejits .

    mate no offence dont take it the wrong way but your saying to her i work around the wifes hours... and then u say it depends on the wifes hours... cos she might be at work.... this does not look professional at all mate no wonder the customers are taking the piss outa u

    I wouldnt ever say this to a customer even if this was the case... i would say to them..... am fully booked then so sorry... make it look out to them that your busy and u cant cope ! that way customers will lick your **** mate.... instead of them ruling over you mate.....

    At the end of the day the customer wants her windows cleaning... she doesnt care if you work around your wifes hours this and that u get me mate

    come on when i phone a plumber i dont expect him to say erm it depends on the wife this and that .... and i work around the wifes hours so i will let u know... you shouldnt ever say that mate if u wanna be professional....

    were in the 21st century now mate u could of got away with saying that in the 1980s.... but now its different mate

    seriously start making it out as if your busy and always fully booked and u should be ruling the customers mate not them ruling u mate ;)
