I'll think about it.... not

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.

and theres no rights or wrongs as to it

Very rit rely 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:
