Funniest Or Most Annoying Cancellation

Recommended Posts

alex1987

We all get customers cancel on us, but sometimes it gets you right angry with the rubbish excuses people give. What stories have you been told as a reason for cancelling?

 

Funniest one I had was because a customers dog kept knocking itself out on the glass when I would clean the windows in excitement.

 

The most annoying one was a customer of 5 years, left a post-it note on the window saying please stop cleaning windows, husband will do it. the husband was 30st and bad legs.

Hahaha I like the dog story that's classic. Best one I have ain't a patch on that. She messages me on Facebook says I've moved so stop cleaning and next day when I pulled up she was on doorstep having a CIG. That was months ago and she still lived there when I was round 2 weeks ago.

I'd say this is a common excuse, but still find it hilarious.. " I don't like wet windows "

I get loads of **** reasons, most aint got guts to say cant afford it

 

want to cancel, as when you clean my windows, it scares my dog and he cuts him self and needs stitches

 

had one cancel the other week, as top windows, didn't come up clean, hadn't been done in 3 months, as he had scaffolding up and had out side of house painted

Had a customer come out to me one time (I'd been cleaning it years), he said "It keeps raining the day after you come, if it happens again I don't want them cleaning."

 

I said ok, fine.

 

It rained the day after and he cancelled.

 

I cleaned 80% of the houses on that road, so walked past his house every 2 weeks.

 

He walked out one day and asked us to do them again.

 

Said yes, and would give him a quote.

 

He ended up paying more.

 

Lesson is, don't mess with me or my money.

 

 

Don't have any funny excuses.

I love the recession one. Got a text the other day saying oh times are tough, we need to cut back so were cancelling you. £7 a month, big savers. They have 3 BMW's and shop at M & S, their really concerned about money.
