Drunk Customer / Clients

Recommended Posts

Ive been in this game for over  20 yrs .  Never met  a drunk client until last year .  That was an experience  customer was actually trying to lick my groundies ear ?

Now  I seem to have loads  ?  They all have good jobs  and nice properties .  Stress or what ? 

Just finished looking at a nice job  around  5.30  today  and the client was well gone ....... he's a teacher .

Dont get me wrong I love a beer and more .... but these people are smashed  ?

I get quite a few, from the ‘couple of glasses of wine with lunch’ sorts to the ‘plastered from midday onwards’ 

 

Doesn’t bother me, their money is as good as anyone’s.

An old boy and his elderly wife who lived in one of the best properties in Kegworth always had us around to do stuff in the garden always tipped best part of half a bottle of scotch in a big teapot with strong tea to fortify us!

I was working on a "posh" house a few years ago, every morning the man of the house would come to see how things were going........ with a pint of beer in his hand.

 

I like a beer but, half eight in the morning.......

That reminds me of an old boy I used to work with. When he poured himself a coffee out of his flask the place stunk of scotch.

Ever worked in France?
Most are still drunk from the night before when they crack open the first wine bottle at 7am
(Then drive to work)
Drink all day at work then go home to get really pissed.
Britain is tea total in comparison.

As long as they aren't obnoxious or causing a problem I don't have a problem with it.

They’re French!
