I love it since I was bunking school working for my mates dad

 

Boar don't tell him to stick at it

Tell him he'll never like it..best give up and give you all his custys..you'll look after them for him

i was a bit annoyed hes advertizing that he has big plans -will beat any price

 

seems hes the undercutter! thing is he hasnt a clue, green,

so im forgiving

 

nontheless if i lose any customers might change my tune

I don't like it, never have and probably never will. BUT, its good money the hours are good, only work 3 days so it cant be bad, could not imagine going back to a job for minimum wage.

 

Boar the guys in the van im assuming is the ones that brought a round off sasha?

That's quite a sad comment Shazzy. I believe everyone should aim to enjoy their work, with window cleaning , I think it's easier to enjoy than other jobs out there by far. Not sure I would continue if I won the lottery though Tuffers, the ladders might scratch the Ferrari!

If he hate it now Boar, he'll hate it even more when he's undercut everyone. He'll be working lots for not a lot of money. I can't stand people that undercut an honest price. Its just so short sighted.

 

Back to the original question, I was a bit nervous up a ladder in the early days, but it soon fades. I think if you are not a bit nervous up a ladder then it means you are not aware of all the things that can (and do) go wrong- 'ignorance is bliss' as they say.

the work is so much easy now, was hard when I first started getting the work in, crap work to start with

but it gets easy better work more experience making more money.

I don't get nervous up a ladder tolish..but I make all attempts to make the job as safe as possible before I go up it..probably am nervous subconsciously as we all have an inbuilt instinct for survival but I don't feel it

Maybe cautious would have been a better choice of word.

So far so good. I've had many shit jobs though, everything is relative.

Work at your own pace for decent money, get to mess around with tools a bit.

 

The main thing is though, that every month 'your business is moving forward'. And that feeling is fucking marvellous.

I left my job when I was 21, 22 year old after working for a company fitting bedroom furnitune all over london,

 

I hated it mostly cos of my ex boss I use to work for, for five long years! How i never smash his face in after all those years I use to work for him I'll never know.

 

One day I just said f##k it and walk out. It was the best thing I've ever done, looking back I kinda wish I started windows cleaning business as soon I left school back then.

 

There are loads of downside to being a window cleaner but heck I love my job and consider myself lucky.
