Posted by T_W_CONTRACTS (T_W_CONTRACTS), 28 January 2004HOW MUCH DO YOU ENJOY WINDOW CLEANING
is it enjoyable or do you do it as a case of having too
ive been cleaning windows for 15 years & i like it. where
else do you get the freedom of window cleaning.
if like me you are self employed then you dont have to answer to anybody as long as you keep your customers happy & stick to your scheduel its cool
if you worked in a normal 9-5 job you cant go home early
if youre not up for it. ok sometimes we have to put up with dodgy weather but its nice in the summer my brother drives a black cab & he moans all the time about
the traffic & the passengers . give me window cleaning any time
ps; the money isnt bad too

Twenty years on and I still love it. Apart from being a personal trainer, what other job would pay you for keeping fit?

Posted by pussycatz (HCS), 28 January 2004I love my job as I get to look at my reflection all day long.
Posted by Majestic (Majestic), 28 January 2004Its great in the summer getting paid to get a tan , not so good in the winter
Posted by Spoonbill1970 (Spoonbill1970), 31 January 2004Absolutely!
17 winters at it. Some days could see it far enough, but mostly a great job for keeping you fit(ish), being in the great outdoors, and being able to listen to TMS in the summer without interruption
I have a lot of customers who work in offices all day, and you'd think they were going to JAIL!
As for not being answerable to anyone... Only the wife!!!

"Can you come back next week" As most people on my round aren't in when I do the windows I have to collect. All my customers know I collect Thurs Fri Sat at tea time and don't answer the door.
