They arent big houses, 7 minutes that's if it's a slow guy on tops, if i'm on tops it's more like 5 or 6 minutes, because i'm talented you see and graft like a bitch, they call me the monkey, but i'm not getting any younger

hey under my new management team I have to say....one rule stood out....ban the fifty pence....:whistle:

 

I know smurfy means well but....some of us are in a different position and areas are different price wise...

 

although....I know which way I want to go...

 

and fortnightly work has to be a piece of piss as I do think monthly is....not so much dirt...which is why my work tends to drift about a lot unless custys ask me twice then they end up WHAT EVER THE WEATHER..on my monthly list....

 

first two houses today a fiver a piece and seperated by several miles....and another later on... a new job...I wont mention here..well okay seeing as some of you like my waffle..

 

fecking council estates...boar your welcome to em...

 

she told me the name as she collared me on another job and said can you clean my windows? well...now let me think...

 

so I gave her my number and told her to text me her address..

and she duly did...and I thought...I just love lifes coincidences...as one of my said monthlies is on the same estate...

as i entered the estate....I noticed the name of her close on the main entrance board and thought oh great I will go and have a butchers as you do...although she had actually told me she would be there in the afternoon...

 

so I drove all the way to the end....no sign of it...I drove all the way back double checking every turn off...couldnt see it so did my due job and thought laters...

 

laters I turned up and still couldnt find it now I could put sat nav on but he takes half an hour to warm up so I guessed where it was and got my ladders and headed off...

 

I asked a guy who said he was a visitor and it wasnt what I wanted.....I walked away peeded off and met another man who sent me back to the same stretch of houses....eventually....after I went for a walk around getting really annoyed...I FOUND IT.....oh...I have never seen a sign for it ..but I did spot the bench the woman told me was outside the front door...

 

well I did the front and went for a good walk around the back and couldnt find a gate....eventually I figured it out but...council estates....hmmmmm

 

well I got my fiver...and left....hopefully she wont bother me again...they were not that dirty but I have much better things to do than walk for miles for a fiver....now as for the other job..

 

I pull on the drive never seen the person yet the money is waiting for me and I now...bang my wfp trolley smack in the middle and boy I fly....
