Anyone working tomorrow?


Recommended Posts

Is anyone working tomorrow and Monday? I don’t usually work bank holidays but need to catch up as I missed 5 weeks of work, not sure people will want me round on a bank holiday tho so not sure what to do.

Personally I couldn’t turn up to work on someone’s house on a bank hol. Everyone can do it how they like tho

Adda - I've been flat out and with new work/addons I've 'run out of time' so I've just asked custy I can do it but in 3/4 weeks or I can fit you in on Saturday or even Sunday - they've all gone for getting it done asap - so I'm working Sat,Sun and Mon (normally just M-F)- if you give your custy the choice they can make the call themselves - fyi everyone's commented how the 'days' no longer really have much meaning...

I never have done on a bank hol, but I am tomorrow. Only two jobs, requested too so. Anyway, its nothing like a bank hol at all (apart from the banks will be on hol) 😬

Nope, more to life.

Hot weather tomorrow, people relaxing in their gardens, then a windie turns up. I personally wouldn’t be comfortable doing this.

I’ve finished my work for the week, but normally I don’t work bank holidays. Think at the moment it won’t matter to most people most customers I’ve spoken to didn’t even know it was a bank holiday this Friday.

As its a public holiday does the Furlough pay 160% of daily rate?

Nope. We have to cover bank holidays and normal holidays if taken.

 

VE Day tomorrow. Not just any bank holiday.

I never work bank holidays or Sundays. I very occasionally work a Saturday to catch up. (Maybe once or twice a year.) I have an old friend (80s) that was a windy. He asked me and another lad to help him do a job on a Sunday once (about 20 year ago). It was old double glazing. We had to lift the front pane out and he cleaned inside it. That was it. He charged the custy a tenner and he gave me and the other lad a fiver each and took nothing for himself. He purely did it to keep the customer happy.

I’ve never worked bank holidays whist working for myself although at the min everyone’s in and everyday feels like a Sunday/bank hol now anyway so wouldn’t make much difference.

Fair enough if you don't work a BH as your family is off and want to do stuff together etc - normally though on BH roads are rammed, beaches packed, attractions are teaming with squabbling families - queues everywhere - restaurants packed, prices hiked etc..

I often work a BH and take time off at a time of our choosing - when things aren't so crowded etc as a result I get to see my customers responses - no one has ever mentioned anything - certainly no negatives comments or 'akward' moments  (everyone gets the date of my next visit so know I'm planning to call) those that are off work and still at home are chilled and everyone is pleased to see me, and have a chat. 95% of my custy stop and have a good 'chin wag' whenever I call anyhow - catching up on families/health/holidays etc - only got a handful of custies that if at home - stay inside and don't come out for a chat. I do have a lot of retired custies - so BHs mean less to them too I guess.

Just sharing - for those who seem to 'fear' intruding on their custy's - this hasn't been my experience at all with my custy's, who I've had for years...respect anyone who takes the day off - just saying it's not as you might expect - like calling on a custy on xmas day 😉
