Call out charge

Posted by Majestic (Majestic), 8 November 2003
One of my  shop customers phoned me on my day off and asked if I could go round and clean one of her shop windows as someone had left a curry on it . I explaned that I did not work at the weekend , but she pleaded with me as I was not due to clean them again for a couple  of days and they looked a mess. So softie that I am I went and cleaned them .Now  how much would you charge , would you just charge for the 1 window ,or the one window plus a call out charge ,taking into account that it is a good paying job , and I get a brew as well  Cool

I have had this a few times over the years but i have just charged the normal amount and just put it down to one of those things that are sent to try us Grin

Ive had this.
The best solution is to say 'I wont charge you but if you would like to make a donation I won't say no'
