"I had a window cleaner, but he stopped coming".

Meaning:

a. I'm a prick with no respect for your sort.

b. He got his pricing wrong.

c. I made things awkward for him.

 

"I might go regular, but we'll see what the first clean is like".

Meaning:

a.I have absolutely no intention of going regular, but I want you to work your bollocks off and earn that £8 that I told you my fictional window cleaner used to charge me.

b. I want the same price as your regulars, but I'm just after a 5 yearly spring clean.

 

"I'm not paying £__ 'just for a window clean'!"

Meaning:

a. I'm going to stay on the phone haggling you down until you charge me 20p per window because every other cleaner I called told me to poke it so you are my last chance.

b.You are not worthy of that kind of pay because you're just a window cleaner.

c.I'm going to totally ignore your overheads, work out your supposed hourly wage, and moan that you are getting more then me 'just for a window clean'.

 

"Can you just..."

(From the French word canyoujustae)

Meaning:

a. I need to get my moneys worth out of you.

b. I'm too lazy to do this myself, but I own you for as long as I have that £8 in my hand, now get back to work monkeyboy.

Cheers mate. I got the idea from a customer the other day, he hit all four of them in one conversation. He was such a **** that I was adamant not to budge an inch on anything. And guess what, that regular clean he was after has turned in to a 'we'll see'. I wish there was a nationwide black list for these punks.

I've always charged 2-4 times the regular price on first cleans, so luckily I've never been caught out, but there are many out there that do get stung. This bloke was claiming his last WCer charged him £10 when it was clearly a £13-£16er.
