But i'm working on my own at the moment so i try and achieve 5 houses an hour £22.50 doesnt always work out that way at this time of year with the weather and whatever, but any way when i was in my early 20's my record was 40 of those houses myself in 1 day and 30 and 30 odds was regular, that's why the guy ended up selling me them, because i was his star man i made him mega dough, and plus i could go off and work on a building site for 6 months and when i came back my window job would be there for me, i was too good a worker for him to say no. Dont get me wrong he would make me sweat for a couple of weeks first though before saying yeah haha but i knew his game. He's been a mate since i was 13 so it was more than just a work relationship

Window cleaners clean glass believe it or not, listen mate i am like john wayne with that squeegy, no one will tell me how to do my job, frames are and added extra where i come from, they will get a bog standard price for the house and if they want frames done that would be extra. Think of it as a gold,silver, and bronze service, then you are on my level

a lot of likes from me kev...:D

 

frames depend a lot on my mood and need for speed or how I am cleaning them as I am a hybrid windy...

 

and some prices may be...OLD prices and so where as once they may have got them wiped....now they may not...unless of course they put the price up for me...as indeed the best custys do..

 

Its always easier to price a new job higher than up an old job...

 

and when you get enough new jobs at the new prices then the old jobs...become :turd: its market forces...

 

like today...which was just great fate...or that force above what ever ...

 

I was all set for another early finish as I work in areas and dependant on time wont pass my house to go in the opposite direction to start another area..but...it was a bit to early to finish after I snuck off home yesterday...but then out of the blue the phone rings..

 

she told me her address but it doesnt always sink in and then she said...you know...the one where the money blew away..oh and then I know who she is and...

 

shes nicely placed on my road home ...I just love fate...

 

I may have told the story of the missing tenner....

but in case you missed it...oh yes the money will be under the wheelie bin..

 

well it was a new job and so I didnt just dive under the bin to get it I did the house and worked my way to the bin which was right by the last window...of course I was really really peeved to find no money...I lifted and checked all three bins as I have been caught out before where the money sticks to the underside of the bin....nope...I EVEN and of course this does look silly ...looked inside every bin...

 

anyway I left my note your windows were cleaned and put it down to collect...

 

it was a while as I DONT really collect anymore..

 

oh she said I thought you had collected it from under the bin....how guilty I felt like she thought I was trying it on...

 

it was a while before I heard off her again....oh she said we were gardening and found the money by the shed....

 

any way....I have done it a few times since and last time she made me a nice huge mug of coffee...and again today she popped out and made me another...but...

 

when I got the money she had left out for me there was £15 and not a tenner....well it may be a late xmas tip I dont know I figure thats what the other windy charged and she has forgot so...I am not saying anything...about time I had a rise...:D

 

so why did I say a tenner well I WAS sent from next door to give a price and his is a tenner.....now that is an old job thats worth £15 maybe he will forget...

 

and dont forget...as I have previously mentioned...the fiveteen pound note is coming..honest...:D

 

fiveteen. Misspelling of fifteen

 

oops .told off by wikki...
