Went to a job this morning to clean a small car.
Arrived at the allotted time, 9am, no one home, fairly remote hamlet no one around, the car to be cleaned was not there, thinks its the wrong place (it happens) and no phone signal. Drove a k away stopped and phoned left message on answer machine, hung up.
Message alert on the phone, said, customer trying to contact me from a mobile, phoned back, he was in MY village looking for me. No no I says I'm at your house, I come to you.
OK be there in 15 hes says and duly arrives in his sand coloured yaris, I reverese into his drive in my truck he has a confused look on his face.
Where is it?
Its all in the back I cheerfully say, alot of the french peolpe I deal with struggle with the concept of mobile valeting untill they see it in operation, I have water, generator, compressor and all the cleaning products on board.
Now Very confused frenchman infront of me. Hang on he says and gets a piece of paper out of his yaris and shows me a leboncoin advert for a van I sold last week, this is what I want not a clean car!
His mum had phoned last week to book an appointment, it will have to be saturday, I asked what car she said a Yaris sand coloured do you want the registration, no its fine I will be there 9 am, is it very dirty? No. Never a mention of --buying, a van, or where I live, or even have I sold it yet.
When his mum phoned I knew it was a elderly lady by the voice but it was just a normal conversation asking her to spell the name of the village etc.
Now I know my french is only marginal but what did I miss I have these conversations all the time and apart from struggling to find an address a time or 2 never really a problem.
Still we had a laugh he makes ice cream for a living and they were really nice people but they didnt want a clean car. Oh well I was up anyway as the F1 qualifying was on this am. Have you had any daft happens like this
