    Who’s had to top up the customer’s electric or gas so you can actually carry out your work...!?

    Today I started a combi conversion and needed to plug my battery chargers and powerflusher in.. no electric..

    The property is rented and between tenants so I needed to go and stick a tenner on the key to get going.

    Im just curious to hear who else does this or just says, na feg it, I’m off. My old boss would definitely be the latter...

    I have a receipt and will be adding it to the bill mind...

    And in Richmond, finding a top up shop, driving there, paying for parking at £1 for 10 minutes and then getting back to job to find all parking bays full. Add an hour. Half way through doing gas rate on a boiler. Tempting to put in a figure and go.
