    Will you fit in all your custies before Xmas or do you just keep to your Rosta. I have been telling my 2 monthly custies that its there last clean before Xmas & always get can you fit in one before Xmas. Don't wanna upset them but how do you fit in 400 odd custies in 2 weeks lol. Insides as well. Do you just say no & stick to yer Rosta & those that come up just before Xmas are the lucky ones this year. I have full days for two of us right up till dec 19th without having any rainy snowy icy days.

    With those 8 weekly customers, just offer to do them next month, rather than miss them the way you would normally. I keep to my rotas. So once its 4 weeks till we knock off, I'll just tell them it will be about 6 weeks rather than 4, as we will be off over christmas and new year.

    Just explain, that everyone is the same, but unfortunately, its just not possible to get to them any sooner.

    I just don't do holidays, never have apart from 10 days away every year as xmas etc have always been my busiest times. I can't see me changing habits now.

    How does that work out posh?

    I work to an 4 weekly and 8 weekly rota.

    Monthlys and bi monthlys work out differently to 4 weeks and 8 weeks surely?

    So if I have a customer on tuesday of the month ill be back on tuesday 4 weeks later

    Gives me a bit of scope if we have bad weather or I have a hol. They know I'm coming roundabout that time. My 2 months is two months not 8 weeks. I like it that way so can have a bit of time off without having to put anybody off for a week.
