Messer Dumped Before The First Clean

Recommended Posts

Tuffers

Woman rings me up asking for a quote. Ok, I'll call round tomorrow night. Gets there and she says they have to be done on a Monday as it's her day off (no access to garden as it's a linked house). Now, I do a few houses on this estate and I like to keep all my work tied up in areas and not keep driving back and forth. But, as an exception, I would do these on a Monday on my way home. Gave her a 4 and 8 weekly quote and a first clean price. She went for the 8 weekly and agreed to pay 25% more for the first clean. She was desperate for them to be cleaned before 7th June as she is having a party. I sent her a text last night saying I'd be round after 3pm today. She texts back saying ok. I arrive at 3:45 and guess what? She weren't fecking home!

 

Goodbye Mrs Messer :mad:

 

Let's hear your messer stories.

u had a lucky escape then. the Asian crowd are nearly always bad messers, oh yes real charmers to get you there in the first place , but then pick holes in your work when it comes to pay up time , then if there are no holes to pick they say you are too quick so you cannot win.

Update, she phoned and left a message; she sent a text at 7:30am on Saturday morning asking if I'd had chance to look at my diary regarding fitting her in. I sent one back saying that I would call after 3pm on Monday (the preferred day for cleaning for her) if that was ok with her. She replied yes ok. So I turn up to clean. Now it seems she thought I'd be phoning after 3pm on the Monday! I give up.

I think we've all been there mate. I had one try and under pay me by £5 the second time I did it. The wife came out moaning and asking why people always put the prices up. I just said 'that's the price we agreed and I'm not putting my prices up as you say.' And yes after that faults are always found in my work. My Mrs said I should tell them to do one. I quite like the challenge of it myself. The man asked me for a quote for a G/S/F clean last time. I put in a nice big price, he nearly had kittens :D Love playing them at their own game :sad:

Dealing with a messer of my own right now tuffers. Hes coming close to getting the WD40 'clean' someone mentioned in another thread. :hehehe: This was his second clean and hes not payed me or replyed to my texts. His last cleaner sacked him off and it seems now I know why. We could really do with a black list on here. Anyway tuffers, don't let it bother you, its better to find out now then later mate.

Not being funny @Tuffers but you did say you would be there a 3:00 but you decided to stroll up at 3:45. I bet you never called to say you where running late either. Shame on you for messing her about like that. :laugh:

Not bothered TAP, maybe I should have made it clearer in my text that I was calling to clean, as she thinks I was calling ie phoning on the Monday.

 

Oh well, if people want their windows cleaned they will have to fit in with me from now on.

Read the original post you silly boy. They had to be done on a Monday (her day off). I said I would call AFTER 3pm. If she wants them done on a certain day she has to make sure she is there. If I said I'd call at 9am and didn't call until 3:45 she would have a point IMO.

 

The problem me and her seem to have is what the definition of call is.
