A warning for other readers.
Having been told that the window cleaner was waiting at the front door, I
assumed that the windows had been cleaned. The windows of the front and back of the house are cleaned alternately â€“ so it depends where you are as to whether or not you actually see the window cleaners.
I opened the front door to pay. A young man stood there, pen and account book at the ready. Nothing unusual.
I handed him a Â£20 note, stating that I hadnâ€™t anything smaller. He took this, said he hadnâ€™t any change and that he would go and get some. Again
nothing unusual â€“ the window cleaners often did that. (Thereâ€™s usually quite
a gang of them busy up & down the road.)
It wasnâ€™t until he failed to return that I realized I had been CONNED!
