for my cleaning service to show up.
And, in preparation of that, I am having to pre-clean the house....
See, they don't load dishes into the dishwasher, or empty the dishwasher. So if there are dishes on the counter or in the sink....she won't clean any of it.
That's sort of a fraction of the things they DON'T do.
They're really good at vacuuming areas from which all obstructions have been removed, and wiping down counters that have already been cleaned. Which strikes me as sort of pointless, considering what I'm paying them and the fact that I hired them because I don't have the time....
So, my search for a maid goes on!
