LONG POST WARNING! :RpS_biggrin:
Best customer I ever worked for was an Italian woman a teacher.
Was doing 2 ceilings rip down plaster cornice rip down lath & plaster, reboard & skim & patch Walls up, it was an insurance job for a builder.
She wanted another lath & plaster ceiling ripping down to match the ones we were doing as she was having her decorator in the following week but this ceiling wasn't water damaged so it wasn't covered on the claim.
My mate met me outside the job & said theres an extra job here she said she'll give us Â£300, it was a Friday I had a newborn in the house I had about 2-3hrs sleep felt like a zombie I said to me mate fcuk it I ain't interested.
He wanted the money & kept going on about it I said nah.
Got inside she was begging us to do it I said sorry not got time to do it today, me mate was stood behind her nodding his head I kept saying no to her, then she said I'll give you Â£400 & feed you all day I said maybe we can fit it in :RpS_laugh:
There was me me mate & a lab & she had 2 painters working outside she made us a tray of bacon & egg & sos & egg crusty bread sarnies choc biscuits tea coffee orange juice ffs :-0
Then we ended up working over a bit to get it all done she made us a couple of ciabatta's with steak onions & mushrooms & cold drinks etc :RpS_biggrin:
Then she asked what we liked to drink we told her & she went out & came back with a pack of fags for the lab a 2 litre bottle of cider for me mate & 4 bottles of newky brown for me lol :RpS_drool:
Then we finished she handed over 400 notes, on top of our money from the builder :RpS_drool:
The lab had Â£60 so doubled his money, we split the rest & builder paid for extra mats :rolleyes)
Was a longer than normal day for a Friday & I was fcuked before I even started but was worth it in the end lol :RpS_biggrin:
