My most difficult customer by far has been the housewife who lures you in by telling you how good of a job you do and she is going to tell all of her friends etc. Yes she has passed my name around but heres the crux. It seems everytime she calls you to clean she adds on simple things like an extra rug, oh hit the top of the sofa...............get that ONE spot in the bedroom on the top level etc.

And since she has established a "Friendship" with you she EXPECTS a discount and additional free things done.

I know it's been my fault because over the years you do develop somewhat of a friendship.
But I was starting to hate when she called because of this.

And I had at least a couple of these type of women do this to me.
Kind of like them giving you a honeydo list.

Well after stepping back and reviewing this I decided to simply charge her for all of the extras.

And after her seeing these on her bill...........................things are now on a business level now.

And she still calls but I think I re-established our "Business" relationship from now on.

I look at the item the are requesting, make a comment about how I can clean it, then say "would you like to go ahead and add this on?"

They know they will be paying for it at that point.

Yeah that's how it's supposed to be but over the years I've got away from that.

But I am making an effort to get off that friend list.

MoNk;

I would have increased the price of the service, and "made her think" I was still giving her something for nothing.

But, I'm sure that she kept you in chains only because she thought you were cute in those buttless chaps.

No it was because she put me in that "husband trap" and that's how she manipulated her husband

Don't git me a going Sheldon!
My wife's side of the family has all the wimin folk with hyphenated names.

Hell one of her brothers has allowed his wife to add hyphenated names to his only two college girls .

How disgusting is that?

Imagine your two daughters having yours and the wife's maiden name?

I have NO respect for such pussies who marry liberal women.

No freakin backbone at all.

That's why I refuse to go to any family gatherings on her side.

Them liberal bites come at me with their claws out!
