The amusing things people say...
Below are some of the things people say, they are not intending to be funny when they say them.... but in a nice way they are quite amusing.
Currently there are a lot of customers asking where I live, which is also amusing as it's not my house that's having the work!
I hope you enjoy reading them and I will add more as they come.
