cleaning my own bathroom weekly, let alone someone else's .Oh my gosh, thanks for the good laugh, and Ducky if you ever want a day off, come up to
the Bay and we'll have a good laugh. OK?
lolol Access! Believe it or not, I actually enjoy residential cleaning!
The toilets are a small part of the job. The best part is my customers
They come 1st. Seriously. They are my bread and butter and I treat
them like GOLD.
I'm looking over at my safety box (contains customers keys)right now, and thinking: "Wow, that's alot of trust these people put in me"! I have a
few key rings filled with customers' keys. Each key ring literally
holds MILLIONS of dollars on them. The contents of their home, the home,
etc. These customers trust that I'm going to clean their homes, and not 'take them to the cleaners'.
Sometimes there is thousands of dollars left out! And when the customer returns home after a long days work, they will find each and every penny left
in its original place. People have asked me if I ever felt tempted to take any? Yes. I did feel tempted, but not anymore, I'm what you say
'de-sensitized now'..and even when I was down to almost my last dime, wondering how I was going to get a jug of milk for the fam, I remember the
words: "Do unto others, as you would have done to you."
I don't think I could hold my head high in public if I went on a 'thiefing binge'. From time to time I see my customers in stores and am so glad
to see them. And you know what? These people actually give me a pat on the back and thank me. Literally.
I have long term customers. I've seen their kids grow up. I'm a ghost that's part of the family. What I mean is, these people have allowed me
into their lives, and in some respect, I AM a part of the family.
I remember this one couple that used to fight like cats and dogs. They both worked their arses to the bone, and when they came home they were dead
tired. Cleaning their home was probably far from their mind. After they hired me, it was about 1 month later that, the wife told me that I was a
life-saver. I looked at her with a perplexed look and asked, "How come?" She said, "It was because of the fact we are both tired, and don't have
time to clean, and stuff piled up, is why we fought...and about who was going to do 'which chore'. I pretty much freed up their time schedule, and
haven't heard one cross word from either of them.
So much love between those two, they just had a baby a month ago, and now I look after the 3 of them. Probably will get to see the baby grow up too.
All my cleaning is customized around different households. Man oh man, that's ALOT of homes to take care of. But no worries though, Ducky has loads
of love to go around.
Life arrives in stages. I don't want to miss a beat.
Toilets are the least of my worries.
