She'd have paid me for them too, however, it's still irritating if you've put in the effort to get a job done in a hurry for somebody & then they don't bother to come back when agreed.

The geral public, don't you just love them. :wink:

I like the "can you do me a copy of these keys while i go to the bank?" people who then forget them go home and ring you 2 mins before you close to say "im stuck in traffic on my way to get the keys, please can you stay iopen for me" GGGrrrrr.

Don't you just love it when they ask for the quickest you can do them

then reply thanks but if I do not get back then I will pop in next week!

 

Yeh, do not worry, i will drop everything to get them done, you come in when you feel like it.

When I win the lottery I am changing the name to Faulty Towers Shoe Repairs &

doing my Basil Faulty impressions to these type of customer.

On a similar subject.

 

There's a big sign outside my shop with a large bunch of keys on saying key cutting, my shop is called Mr Keys, on looking at me a customer cannot fail to see a board of keys behind me approx 6ft high by 18ft wide with thousands of keys on and still the first thing out of their mouth is "Do you cut keys" =D> =D>

 

No shit Sherlock

 

Should I start to tell em I am simply a collector

What happened to half an hour being a reasonable amount of time for a simple repair job ?

 

...we now get customers (usually women with stilettos) saying this..

 

ME - `2 pairs of stilettos yep certainly - half an hour OK ?`

 

CUSTOMER - `That long - Can`t you do them quicker ?`

 

ME - `O.K - 20 minutes?`

 

CUSTOMER -`Nah I`ll leave it`....shoes back in bag ...out the door!

 

we are now getting this about twice a week - for the last couple of years ...obviously I will try while you wait when possible but sometimes I stand firm out of sheer bloodymindedness.

I had one in last week, "how much for one of these?" £5.50 for one or I can do you a deal on more. "That's robbery, I got two for one euro last year in Spain". Other customer turns to her and says, we'll f@@k off back to Spain then, I laughed uncontrolably and the customer stormed out. Good times.

It is heartening? to see that you people have the same awkward customers as me. They sure get round the country quick.

Just yesterday, young lass wanted me to take off her sole and heel from her fashion boots and attach a chunky moulded wedge unit which had somehow been taken off a trainer, she then questioned me why can't it be done. Hellooo...
