just ferinstance

during your working day, you arrive at a pre-booked job,

fully tooled and with all the required materials, knock the door and start unloading

while your doing so, the door opens and their is a very pleasant looking youngish lady standing there, possibly she could be described as "Eye Candy"

you go in, and she engages you in conversation, whilst making you a coffee,

the matter of decorum is, she is wearing a white cheesecloth peasant type shirt and it is patently obvious that she is not wearing any form of bra,

Where do you put-focus your eyes ? without trying to look that you havent noticed

You look at the job in question, take a sharp intake of breath, give a few 'tut-tut-tut's' and say "This job will take longer than I thought..."

Almost rude not to look, as doing so might suggest you bat for the other side!

One fixes one's gaze on her eyes. One then makes polite conversation as befits a gentleman when he is addressing one of the fairer sex.
Something along the lines of "Cor !! Bangin' set of Norks Missus !!" :)

She probably dressed like that in the hope you would knock something off ?

Or maybe, having informed the lady that due to the warm weather you will be working in just a pair of shorts. Then arrange an incoming mobile phone call when you are preoccupied with some thing fiddly / difficult ie. no spare hand.. Ask the lady to remove the phone from your pocket to take the call.
"Sorry my dear the phone is in my other pocket".

If I can`t keep my eyes off I have a routine, just say `sorry mustn`t stare, its hard work being a gentleman`. Say it with a smile and
any awkwardness is alleviated. yes I agree I should get paid for this.
