Good stuff, I like stories like this, it restores my faith in society. I hope you took his number too, as you invariably get offered jobs that are only suitable for WFP that would be great to return the favour. I hada woman a while back that was desperate to have her windows cleaned, she sounded like a good sort, and it was a good size house, but the windows were just impossible to do trad (Georgians, all above porches, extensions etc). The best part was that she was prepared to pay good money for it, but unfortunately I just don't know any local WFPers to hand it over to.

Wish I had a couple of window cleaners like that in my Town, its good to know that we have decent window cleaners in our trade to:)

I just get the glare off other window cleaners in this area, so I just make sure I smile and wave at them :laugh:
