My mom cleans houses and one of the people she cleans for has “realized how much she’s done” and wanted to “give her something” and mailed her like, less than 100 bucks to thank her for all her work and said SHE HOPES WE’RE USING FOOD BANKS IN THIS CRAZY TIME….

I think my favourite ‘customer’ when I was a cleaner, was the one who’d leave used sanitary items under and around the bed for me to collect and dispose of.

My mom cleaned a lot of hoarder houses when I was growing up and I would often help out. One time, we going through someone’s room and found a cage with two rat skeletons in them. They weren’t pests, they were pets the kid had forgotten about. Blew my freaking mind.

That is a bit unfair, they are probably trying to be nice. I have scrubbed a lot of toilets and one house where I worked for 10 years and practically raised their daughter while they were divorcing told me that I was being selfish leaving and refused to ever give me a reference.

I was talking to a cleaner, he told me as the majority of the people he was cleaning for who had stopped paying him were isolating he offered to to their shopping thinking he could earn a little fetching & carrying instead but none paid him any more than what the items cost.

Cleaned for a nudist couple once. Got trapped in a basement for twenty minutes and was late for my next house ‘cuz the husband was naked leering at me from the next room that lead back upstairs. Explained to management what happened, and they brushed it off.

My aunt was a servant to some rich Brits. My uncle was the chauffeur.
We were carrying the groceries 5 miles back from the village when my uncle drove by in an empty car.
He would have been fired if he’d given us a ride.
Instant radicalisation for this teenager.

My Mum was a cleaner. Shout out to the woman who came to our home ‘to check’ if my Mum was telling the truth about a family bereavement and complained that she couldn’t come in that day. So proud when Mum handed her back her keys and asked her to leave.

I worked two summer camps: one with cleaners, one where me and the kids did it ourselves. The one with the cleaners was all rich kids and utterly disgusting. The one without, the kids didn’t have two cents to rub together and kept it spotless. It was telling.

Seconded! I used to be a cleaner & quickly discovred that so called “posh” middle/upper class people can be as feral (& rude) as anyone. Out of all my clients, the best people to work with were seniors- they actually appreciated the cleaners and would often make us cups of tea.🙂
