Verbally abused by a 10 year old window cleaner...

So I turn up at a house to do a first clean and just as I'm walking round the back I see an old blue 'people carrier' driving past with the tell tale ladder on the roof rack, so I instantly clocked him as a windy. I didn't acknowledge him or anything as he was just driving past, and I had never met him before anyway. So I did the back of the house and moved round to the front about 10 mins later and just as I started on the downstairs windows I clocked him at the corner of my eye driving past again. But carried on working. All of a sudden I heard....

 

....DON'T FORGET THE CORNERS!!!

 

I looked round ready to give my default response "Fu** off C**nto!", but when I looked round, it turned out to be the windies 10 year old lad hanging out of the window with a huge cheeky grin on his face. :D

 

I was pissing myself for the next half hour because of that. Its the little things that cheer you up on a day. :)

I haven't bumped into another windy while working for a long time now. It really can get lonely on the windows sometimes, but then that's half the attraction for me as I like my own company, even though I'm a bellend. :D

Cnc I'm dreading tomorrow morning got an ex farmhouse to clean, customer though a decent woman is in her early 50s but the job takes double the time it should due to her yapping away, I try and time it so she's not in when I turn up. I've got time for any one but this is just awefull subtle hints like I best crack on don't work. I keep saying to myself when I get new customers to the value of this job I'm giving it up but I have new customers 10 times over the value but cant seem to give it up.

I bet that windy driving the car was pissing himself lol.

 

I think a lot of us windies must like our own company. Thats one of the reasons why I have decided not to take anyone on. I just likes it on me own and there are plenty of customers who want a conversation, as we all know. I even enjoy my little rain breaks, sat in the car, cuppa and a biscuit, daydreaming as usual and playing about with me internet phone:rolleyes:

I'm the same with all of that mate. I love the fact that your van becomes your office for the day. I like parking up for lunch and sitting to watch the milfs and the student go by while I'm munching on a scotch egg. The only thing I could do with is a porta-loo, so I can grow a tail in the back of the van instead of sloping off to the pub or shop.:D

I spent a good 45 minutes in one ladies kitchen today, having a brew whilst she told me of her troubles with the neighbours. She kept breaking into tears. I felt really sorry for her and felt it was the right to sit and listen to her rather than cracking on with the job. It put me behind, but hey ho!. I should have been a vicar!
