Re: Unusual freebies from customers

We did a job for a 6ft 6in 'lady' (she looked like David Walliams and had an adams apple).
When we finished she gave each of us a bottle of perfume.
She was kind to us and very polite.
Felt quite sorry for her really -
We did smell nice afterwards.
Beat the hell out of stale biccies and rancid milk we got from one old dear.
