Am I going to skip on a resi? No.
On something done 1wk or e/o wk? Perhaps. But not arbitrarily.
Small pane above doors? Squirt and squeegee.
Drivethru windows are done but can easily add 30 minutes to a job if they are hopping, especially if there are two.
Ill stand in the line and assert myself but the crew also has to be cooperative, some part like the Red Sea when they see me, others act like they are the first drive thru Ive ever done.. Once, had a girl snap open the windows while I was standing there cleaning the outsides. Fine. If thats how it is, I'll smell ya later. Take it up with your Regional Head of Operations when he complains the windows are dirty.
Also, if Gertrude and Harold are hauling their walkers on over to their favorite table, newspapers in hand, and plop down before I get there, weeeelp.....
I will say that there is such thing as claiming your space in dining rooms.
* A huck on the line of tables ahead of you,
* your pole resting across a couple tables,
* chairs blocking off a section,
* cheerful chit chat whilst you clean right near someone, or just smiling and asking "Will it trouble you greatly if I clean this window near you?"
Usually works out that all windows can be accessed.
