    on paper today was going to be fairly easy...:rolleyes:

    one house money left no one in easy peasy...and a bungalow money left no one in.....two to price up and then hopefully head miles in the other direction to do some more..but...life sometimes doesnt like cheapie....

    I was on the road quite early for me....and in a good mood.....now the first job I had looked up and so as it was the furthest start there first .....and then turned straight around and did a runner....she can....feck off for a start..:whistle:

    why, why....well....last time I did it was about a year ago and she asked me to remove a nest as the bird was making a mess on the window....

    que smurfy ....he will remember that post....as the birds nest in question was a housemartins...and I started to knock it down and felt sick because it had babies in it so I left it somewhat damaged....

    posted on here what had happened and I think it was oh wise one that told me its a £5000 fine.....oops....

    and guess what she wants her windows cleaning now....now cheapie isnt the brightest star in the sky but....would it not be house martin nest building time now...?

    I dont believe my web site says house martin nests removed.......so I er did a runner...

    next one I had to put my sat nav on for...sat nav lives in the glove box....glove box is locked by two 25litre barrels....how many times must I do that before my brain wakes up....

    so cheapie struggles to get the barrels on the seat and get the sat nav out and of course when he looks at his list....he hasnt put down the bloody post code....

    not too bad you say....as you can text the wife...but......cheapie had sent her on a mission.....yesterday when he picked up the money on a job he wrote a nice note and put on it three kisses as she is a special custy...she gave cheapie chocolates last time...anyway by the time cheapie had got around the front he totally forgot the note in his pockets with the fiver change....

    and so the wife was duly sent to walk the dog that way...and post it back through the letter box...another cheapie ******** up...

    anyway she couldn't text me the postcode as she was still doing the mile and half walk...

    so to the next job....well money left no one in and a first clean....okay...the doggy was watching...
    originally the owner tried to pin cheapie down to a day when she was home but cheapie didnt like being watched.:specs...well the dog didnt bother him too much..

    and so onto the drive cheapie drags out the back pack and his trusty banana......now cheapie is getting good....or so he thought and he remembered to set the pole up at the furthest window first and then put the backpack in the middle and hes good to go...

    so what could possibly go wrong...?

    well true he had put it up at the furthest window but ....not the furthest pane of the furthest window...and six inches is a lot..:devil:.YEH....

    and of course as cheapie finished off the first pane and gave that little tug to the second pane....over goes the back pack....
    yep this was going to be a frank day for sure...

    well doggie was enjoying the entertainment ...so off I went very happy. although cloudy it was warm and cheapie was getting stuck in an it was mainly that nice glass...

    got to the front door to see a meter reading card on the door sill and the door sill and frame looked really grubby so were going to get a good brushing....so he picked up the meter reading card and shoved it through the letter box only then did his brain engage....oops...although I dont understand...what are these....
    20150522_120645.jpg

    it had been stuck on with blue tac...he thought...maybe it should have been left there....

    still no going back....finished off and loaded back into the car but cheapie was in a go slow mood and thought let em dry off and whip the ladders up clean the sills and check as he usually does ..so...quick change to his shorts...the dog loved that....and then....

    how about sending a picture to the owner to reassure her that her dog was okay....which he duly did....

    20150522_120059.jpg


    finished checking spending a bit of extra time on the front door and bay as that is what the custy will see...and off he went now he had the postcode off the wife...

    straight into a traffic jam....yawn...but cheapie had decided to just follow sat nav where ever that may lead...
    yep this was a frank day....he had the name of the house...NEWBIES PLEASE TAKE NOTE...dont do a cheapie...

    the names of houses arent always visible from the road....yep the owners know where they live...but does cheapie...?

    well luck was around really for the postie was there but before cheapie could turn around he spotted a man picking up his post....
    yep very lucky ...he was the owner of the house cheapie was looking for...

    but take note...this isnt the first time cheapie has lost a job because he just couldnt find it..:rolleyes:..

    quick look around owner following everywhere....hmmm well cheapie thought count the glass...£1 £2 etc...it was only a bungalow...but mrs owner was inside watching as well as mr owner stood behind...every pane seemed to have three or four blobs of bird poop ..well it was down a country lane....
    cheapie wrote down double for first clean at £30 as it was so dirty and he didnt want to do it as he wants next week off...

    and off he drove to the next job ...but....well cheapie was very hungry now...and he had to pass a chippy....well it would be rude not too wouldn't it...

    and there at the lights he spots mr arrowsmith and sorta smiles but he doesnt know cheapie...funny enough the second time I have passed a fellow windy in two days...
    and pulled up at another bungalow where the money is left and no one in...dont worry its hidden..no one will spot the tenner..honest
    20150522_131211.jpg

    .and cheapie gets a text.....yep he'd got the job as soon as possible...oh but cheapie wants next week off but then again...it was a bungalow...hmmmm
    he ate his fish and set off to work after picking up his hidden money under the wheelie bin...

    five minutes later...a car pulls on the drive...oh sugar...yes....apparently she finishes early on a friday....cheapie took note of that for future use...
    but lucky she was off out again to the hair dressers..so he decided to write a long text back to the new job explaining how he was having a holiday next week but maybe get called out so maybe clean the windows...

    the owner texted back he couldnt get sms messages...

    apparently when cheapie sent the picture of the doggie through the window pane to reassure the last customer the phone had gone all sms and now it wouldn't change....despite 15 minutes of going around in circles he couldn't get back to normal text....and...to make matters worse and this is not funny.....that £10 house...double for first clean...was now only worth £9 as the phone had charged him a £1 to send the doggie picture....hmmmm cheapies stupid ideas...although the custy did text back love the picture....

    so I couldn't text back and had to wait for my tech head. IT student son to get my phone fixed....yeh...he didnt know how to do it either and told me to google it..

    I shot off to do a request that had come in last night for a custy who had just had the front rendered and the windows were covered in shi te..
    builders..look at the way they left the garage doors..
    20150522_143849.jpg


    .so a quick whip over with banana and I shot off to another new job ...she was in washing the dishes so cheapie did a runner and thought sod it its friday...

    so not a good day...many other things went wrong....the applicator with out the soap so had to go back to the car. apparently every pen disappeared somewhere..and my note pad too despite having tons at home..oh and of course ...I had my pole strapped on my ladders with a bungy and when I nipped out to do that dusy render job....I put my pole back in the car...and just pulled past the traffic lights to see a pair of ladders sliding forward..

    20150522_144040.jpg

    .its a good job its an old car...oh I give up...time to go home...

    so will cheapie get his long awaited holiday....time away from the windows...I very much doubt it but...hes having a lie in...:D

    Like who in their right mind sends the custy a photo of the dog :rofl:. If I see a dog I think 'oh it's a dog' and that's it. No time to be fookin about seeing if anyone's home and if they are, going off and doing another job instead. You are raving Dave :laugh:
