About 17years ago I managed to drop a 3 1/2 mtr ladder through a front door that happened to have a presservation order on it!! Total cost for the glass was
706.05 including VAT. Customer was so glad to learn I was insured as his last window cleaner wasn't. I was glad too!Thats my best or should I say worst. Can anyone top that?
