I'll think about it.... not

Recommended Posts

Had a one off from last year call last night. Said : can you come and clean Saturday?

Me : I can clean your during the week as you have easy access.

Her: yes but I want to be in when you clean them... Nothing against you...

Me: I think about it.

 

Put the phone down and said to the missus.. Time wasters... Added a few swear words. Can't be bothered with one offs any more. I already started charging almost double and they still pay... But if she don't trust me then stuff the custy she's not a custy I want...

 

Rant over. Guess whose in a bad mood today... Tired.

Most of my jobs are one-off exterior house cleans. Also most already have a regular window cleaner.

I would rather work at one house and earn a good days wack than do lots of small paid jobs myself.

Very rarely do one offs now. Just don't seem to find the time now & they still don't want to pay

Same here posh. I cant keep up with my round as It is....so turn most one offs down. However, if its a very good earner then I can be tempted. As boar said, its a business where we can pick and choose.

As good old H would say £6 for that one... easy money :D

Well the chap did say it was a big house @cheapncheerful but still probably paid you peanuts. That one off clean in anybody’s money is a good day’s wack of £200 - £300 just for the outside surely? :rolleyes:
