Boring people live in immaculate houses ?!?!?
In my job I go into lots of folks homes very day, and I'm forever hearing 'sorry the house is dirty/messy'. To which I always reply that I just houses by the smell and not how much crap there is lying about. There's a world of difference between a messy chaotic house that's like that because, hey people have to live there, as opposed to a filthy shithole that no one bothers to CLEAN. Believe me I see it all. As long as ill accept a cup of coffee, take it as given that your house is ok.
once turned up to a house to fit a lift with another installer, he got there before me and was quite happily standing in the kitchen drinking a cupper when I arrived, the house smelt of urine but not eye stingingly so! I was offered a cupper but politely refused, I was in the process of reading the R/a for the job when it was offered .... Customer has taken to storing urine in cups around the house! I have never seen anyone turn that shade of green before as other installer read the paper work
I'll give him credit he held it down and worked well that day considering he had drunk two cups of tea before arrived on site
