Dirty Curtains

It's a bit of a standing joke with some of my regulars when I get on their street I will say something like” which house is it again is it the one with the dirty curtains” or” is it the one on the rough end of the street”. But sometimes I do slip up and say things like that to people who I don’t know, like today I said “oh you mean the one with the scruffy garden “ the lady didn’t look amused. There was a local driver who is retired now but who was well known for making remarks when he picked up or dropped of passengers, he would say such things as” that door could do with a coat of paint” or that crass needs cutting and your hedge trimming” and “you can buy a brush and shovel cheap enough you know”
