Other People's Messes: Life Is Fair

I was not a happy little girl, the night that Diane punished me for spilling the cereal. Lauren had bumped me. It hadn't been fair.

Other People's Messes: The Messes We Can't Clean Up Ourselves

I had learned, however, to my sorrow, that some messes were just plain toxic. Some, no matter how much you would like to, would be more injurious to try to clean up, and the cleaner would do so at great and unnecessary risk to her health and well-being. My father spent his formative years in a... Sign in to see full entry.

Other People's Messes: Understanding

I was alone at the job on Buttercup Street. It was a larger home, somewhat beautiful, in fact. I'd spent many hours on this project. Jane had only been able to help me for part of the time. It was evening and the sun was going down. For some reason that day, I just felt...good. I kept looking at... Sign in to see full entry.

Other People's Messes: Time To Bloom

Believe me when I say that the last thing a professional house cleaner wants to do is to clean her own home when she returns to it. I was fortunate if I could even move when I got back. I'd shuffle around the house, sighing and moaning a bit if something in or on me ached. I'd breathe heavy at the... Sign in to see full entry.

Other People's Messes: The Demise

For many months, I managed the business and its employees. I found that I did not enjoy being an employer much. Wanting to make it easier on those women was my downfall. I knew firsthand how hard a job the cleaning was, and felt the need to ease their burdens. At the same time, this meant more work... Sign in to see full entry.

Other People's Messes: The Good, the Bad, and the Underdressed

"Attention: Employees There is nothing wrong with dressing up while on the job. Most of the dirt, should you 'get any on you', washes right out, barring oven grease, which you have to be careful of. One of the property managers that brought potential clients by to see the unit was not too happy with... Sign in to see full entry.

Other People's Messes: We Could Toast To That

It was Bruce's extended family's Christmas Party. We were in a church hall; the only place in the area large enough to house so many people. There were literally hundreds of them. Bruce's late mother was from a prolific bunch. I'd met quite a few of them at the last three wedding's I'd attended. I... Sign in to see full entry.
