    Worse still, the blooody ones fresh from the microwave to the pie oven., you don't notice it until you're back in your ute, and on to the next job. I hate microwaved pies with a passion.

    And while i'm on a roll,
    The customers who feel the need to come out and have a chat,
    1. When you've just started the job (turn the machine off, turn the music off, take off the ear muffs,)
    2. You've just started the back, out they come again (turn the machine off, turn the music off, take off the ear muffs,)
    3. Finished the job, pack the gear away, bang on the door, wait 3 minutes, hear the footsteps slowly shuffling to the front door, open the door, oh i'll just get your money, shuffle back to where they started from, shuffle back to the door, pay you, inform you of their medical history and appointments, you then turn to make a quick escape.
    4. oh while you're here

    Here's a little confession, in my pest control days i had the occaisional wanker who locked up thier tool shed, and the missus never had a key, ..no probs id'e say, call when its open and i'll do it on my next drive past, (1-3 days)....one particular x client never stopped complaining, eventually i dissmissed him....but shot a little something in his mower, just to get rid of any nasties that might be lingering in the fuel tank....somfink like that...maybe created some work for a mower guy.

    I gave one the flick yesterday. I have mowed this property for 3 years but this owner has been there for 1 year. Absolute pitta!! She always asks questions about her garden when I Finnish the lawn that usually last 30 minutes and after the advice never gets me to do the work but waits until I come again to ask the same questions. Anyway she finally got around to getting me to do the work and booked me in I aloud 3 hours to do the job. I turned up yesterday as scheduled and she wasn't home but her father was he is Greek and cant speak much English, he came out and told me to forget about it as he didn't know anything about it, I lost it and he got a big ear full and told him to get someone else. You get that

    I wasn't abusive just gave him the facts and as the facts stand I no longer want to work for them again due to their time wasting behavior I have far more valuable customers that I wish to service than get messed around by the likes of you and your family. What can he say? I said the truth and said it calmly to his face. I have another customer in the same street a few doors up that I do garden work for, I'm going there tomorrow
