I was in 2 minds whether to turn up tbh. Like a fool I decided to go and quote it. It was the size of 3 connys put together at least and minging. The price will be £*** I say. I added a bit of smelly house tax on top :sick:. Wait for it........"can you do it any cheaper?" Err no. "We have had quotes that are a lot less than yours." Get them to do it then, goodbye.

 

I'm getting to the stage where if I hear an Asian accent on the other end of the phone I'm going to just hang up.

they Almost slipped up letting you hear the telltale accent, normally theyre good at faking a friendly middle england voice . nontheless you still fell for it .

I'm not racist, have a mixed race niece and nephew, love them to bits.

 

However....

 

Every single Indian customer on my round is extremely fussy and very very tight with money, even when I know for a fact that they are well off. It must be there culture, they expect jobs done for cheap,

 

One of my customers (who was Indian) cancelled because I wasn't there long enough to earn the £10 I was charging. I said 'but the job is perfect' he said 'yes but it's taken you 10 minutes, I'm not paying £10'

 

I've noticed it must be a cultural thing, no other culture seems to be as stingy...

It is definitely a culture thing

I have a couple of sikhs on my books who are completely different

It seems to be the muslim culture imo

I like it when you get an overseas phone call from a call centre. You can hardly understand what they are saying but they all use English christian names. WTF is that all about :D

Yeah I don't think it's a religious thing as most Indians are Hindu etc, but there culture clearly doesn't like window cleaners!

 

I always think 'I'm sorry but you have chosen to live here in the UK, therefor what we do and how we do it, is something you shouldn't challenge'
