First day back to work today, nearly didnt bother as I was up late but got out in the end. Did anyone notice how many other windies were about today? It was like a scene out of Zulu, we were all tripping over each other here, it was a bit embarrassing. Even a customer mentioned it.

Sometimes I just wish we could all get together and swap a load of customers. I'm sure some travel from the furthest reaches of my areas, it would be great to off load my distant ones, and get a load on my doorstep. Come the spring I'm doing a flyby night flyer drop to see if I can find any disgruntled customers.

Everytime i clean some of the roads near where i live i seem to see a new window cleaner, new in the sense that ive not seen them before, i was chatting to the one chap "Alan" and he said he lives in walsall! Which is bloody miles away, not only that but he charges £3 less than i do, crazy, u wont catch me driving more than 1-2 miles, no need. I am fortunate to live by some massive modern fairly wealthy housing estates though.

I think my little town must have 10plus windies....only holds about 30000 people lol. and some travel 10/15 miles to get here, I don't clean in there down and don't want them cleaning in mine hahah.....When I pick up customers I always make it clear I live local and that I believe in using local businesses.

I pick up loads of work because ppl prefer to deal with someone local they can trust than an outsider so to speak.:)

I'm originally from Walsall, there's hundreds of Windies there, all stomping the same ground so my brother tells me

My bro got a load of his from Facebook, but majority is word of mouth.

 

I've had to turn down a few jobs due to my collarbone and not having full movement in my arm. Found out yesterday that I get the plate and pins removed on Valentine's day. Well chuffed as it gets me out of an expensive night out with the better half. Trouble is though, she's out wedding dress shopping at the minute, I can hear my debit card crying from here.
