    So here's the story,

    This week I get a call out to go to a granny flat at one of these 'assisted living' complexes, you know the type, you have the independence of your own place with the security of 24 hour staffing including nurses, cooks groundsman etc...

    I price up granny, 2 front windows 2 back windows and a door (every apartment here has the same and they are all 3 minute jobs)

    I head over to the site office to check I will be ok to work on site, manager asks for liability proof so I trot to the van and return with insurance certificate in hand.

    No problem, says the manager, there is no other window cleaner on site now as last one was dismissed for substance abuse and charging grannies without doing job.

    Hmmmm...... I spot the opening here!

    'Can I put a notice on the board in the communal area about my service please Mr Manager?'

    'Sure'

    A day later the manager calls me up to advise me he has taken details for 26 grannies that would like to take advantage of my WIDOW CLEANING SERVICE !

    'You what? I say In my tired state and hurried typing I had only ended up with a typo that offers a monthly widow cleaning service by experienced professional tradesmen!

    Luckily they all saw the funny side.
