    the cleaners when we used to live in the pub were great.
    after the really big disco nights in the pub i would go down and help them if they needed it.
    after all if they didn't do it we would of had to do it our selves. they done a most splendid job. they were computer designers but done the cleaning about about 6am/5am. Husband and wife.

    if any one on the street smiles at me i return the smile its nice to have a smile insted of an insult. its like some people don't understand when i say thankyou both when i get on and of the bus...

    Can somebody please explain to me what the hell has CLEANER got to do with the POINT of this thread? Do I detect a little class overtone here? And nowhere have I read the comment "I would smile FIRST!". Strange, that.

    However if a street worker was swearing or being rude (seen this many times) I would show my look of disaproval. They are working so they should not be effing and blinding.
    So if you heard your bank manager swearing and cursing................?????

    I would complain about it, but they are usualy professional and don't ever swear in public, I don't see what makes people think they have the right to swear in public while working while their digging the streets.

    Why wouldn't you smile back? It would just be plain rude to look away or whatever...
    I know its rude i thought i'd do this poll because when i was in a shop peole used to smile all the time and now i am pushing a water bottle trolley people don't smile well when i went into the toronto flight some people did'nt smile when i did which i thought was so rude or like some of the florida flights so thats what it was. funnily enough when i was working in the shop in the british airways bit 99% of people were great business travellers and cabin crew all great now the other terminal feels weird.

    I do agree with you - I'm not overkeen on swearing at all - whether a prime minister or a sewer worker. But to some people - swearing is part of their culture - horses for courses.

    What a stupid fukkin thread...
    Excuse me but no its not a stupid thread because when you finally get into the working world you might find people being rude to cleaners just because of their job and i think all people should be respected regardless and this thread was put here to see if everyone agrees with me as i needed to know how many good people there were compared to others.

    Looking again at the pole is the option 'You smile' in italics to promote some sort of subliminal message so people choose that one?!

    Or is that coincidence?!

    No training course - I followed someone about for a day, I hoover four rooms, wipe tables and put up chairs in three empty four bins, cloase windows in the rooms, switch out lights, mop a small area and clean walls and chairs.

    £6.01 an hour which is cool
