A FRIEND of mine lives in Berry Brow.
One day she saw a man outside holding a chamois leather and a squeezy bottle. She went out and asked him how much it would be to clean her windows. “Five pounds” he said. “ For each window?” . “ No”, he said , “For the lot”. Money changed hands. Five pounds is really cheap so much so she told him her neighbour needed a window cleaner.
Apparently the neighbour also took up his offer to return next day to do the job. He didn’t. I asked her why she didn’t think it was peculiar that he hadn’t a ladder a bucket or a van.
He was just walking around with a chamois and a squeezy bottle. She was so angry with herself.
So if you want to earn some easy money just walk round with a chamois and apparently, according to ‘Dirty Windows of Berry Brow,’ women will give you money.
I heard a policeman on the television saying to contact them you must use ‘The three nine system’.
Why couldn’t he have just said “Ring 999”. They seem to want to avoid plain speech.
“At this moment in time?” What’s wrong with Now?
