    Who else has done this then?

    Was instructed by a custy to park at the back gate, told me red gate, tree overhanging & tree cuttings piled up.

    Walked in, halfway through the garden," What are you doing?!! "

    "hi shelley im here to clean your windows!". Im not shelley and i dont need a window cleaner!

    Oh sorry i say, this was the instructions i was given. Turned out house i needed was 10 houses up.

    What are the chances of the directions i was given being exactly the same for another house?!

    I ask facebook customers to put something in window like a piece if paper with an X on it or something (change it all time) not just to make sure it's right house but more to make sure I'm not being wound up by another windie.

    Last month cleaned this house(one house in a row of house) anyway, it was the third house in, in the row, anyway I somehow counted it as two houses in, as the one at the end didnt have a front door like the others but was on the side.

    So when I when to do the back I counted two houses in by mistake and started to clean the backs, women comes out and says I thought we agreed every 8 weeks?

    I was like yeah we did but I counted the wrong house in lol.

    Was meant to do next door
