Yeah, I decided that the Monty Python "I Fart in Your General Direction" shirt I was wearing in the other one wasn't professional enough.

You won't regret it look into a ProTeam pack they are the good ones. I have had them for along time got one that is 6 or 7 yrs old still in great shape. I would not clean with out one.

I may get a couple of these instead.
Should be cheaper.

You might want to run that past your wife first.
They tend to get touchy about those sorts of things.

My wife didn't think this was funny at all.
What's the matter with her?

NO, you dont' ask on stuff like this. You just wait till she leaves for a bit and strap it on. Then, when she walks in say "Look what I did!"

Have just picked up my first message, literally as I was walking out of the door.instructed to tell you all a little about myself, here goes -
Starting working in the cleaning industry when I was 18, was a young mum and needed extra cash, only industsry that gave me the flexability to work around my children, discovered that I liked cleaning and over the course of 25 years worked my way up to Area manager, pretty good salary, company car. Was then head hunted by a former client to start him a business (Business Development Manager)supplying janitorial products to Health and Care Sector, Buisness and Industry. He had the finances and (as I thought) I had the experience, have been doing it now for 4 months and havent had 1 sale as yet I have almost completed my direct mail campaign and have had only 1 phone call back asking for a quote, nothing has come of that. I can not fail at this I would appreciate any help or advice that anyone can give me to highlight my business and get it into the market place, Sorry for waffeling on. Cheers Belinda Hathaway.
