Ever since i took up window cleaning weird incidences that have no conclusion have happened to me. Not every day, just 2 or 3 times each year. Do these have a hidden meaning…?
Each time iv tried to rationalize them,get to the bottom of them – and i never can . One happened to me today so im documenting it here ,while i still can recall the finer details.
I had just finished my work for the day and was walking back to my van and i see a middle aged ordinary lady setting up to take a photo [on her phone] of the side of van ,getting my number it seems.
She sees me and asks for a biz card instead .I give her one and then she explains shes looking for a new window cleaner,- cos the one she has fell off his ladder Yesterday -and he was airlifted out to hospital by the ambulance helicopter . Im gobsmacked at how callous she is but shes got my card now ,too late i cant grab it back. I ask whats this guys name,she had to think….its Ali . Then she goes.I watch her walk away over to a cluster of parked cars nearby but she disappears without me seeing which one she got into . No matter .
Once i get home i start asking around on the grapevine,but none of the regulars have heard of an Ali . One cleaner heard from a friend that the helicopter Did land yesterday next to the Primary school ,so that fits. Nothing on the net or in the local rag about it ….
Seems im now going to have to wait till/if she ever calls me,to find out who Ali is. She mentioned she texted him later on the day he fell but he didnt reply . Course hes didnt-hes in hospital somewhere .
