It's Not Easy, Being Green....
I say that because I spent the entire day being green. I am now gainfully employed, and by a green cleaning company no less! If you were reading my tweets yesterday, you know that I got a job, kinda on the fly. I started today at 8am and didn't really stop. I was paired up with two of the regular ladies and as I got into the car I found out just how crazy the day was going to be. One of the ladies was Hungarian. The other lady was Spanish. Neither one of them spoke English with any real grasp of the language. The part of that situation that became so frickin' hilarious was.... the Hungarian woman who spoke little English and couldn't read it well either.....WAS DRIVING THE COMPANY CAR WITH US IN IT!!!!!!!! OMG I was wondering if we were ever going to get to any of the houses that were scheduled to be cleaned. First though, we had to go and gas up. Hungarian Hannah didn't know how to do that either. I had to show her how to use the fast pay thingy on the key ring. Once that was finally done, we were on our way.
We cleaned fancy houses. We cleaned Million dollar houses. We cleaned beach houses. Then we got here.....(see photo)
The view from this condo was amazing. It made me want to buy lotto tickets just for the possibility of winning and being able to live in a place like that!
So after we were all said and done.... we had cleaned 5 places with a stop at a house from another day that the owner needed re cleaned because they didn't like the job the first time(I had nothing to do with that one.) In between jobs, I was treated to the Hungarian Hurricane, mostly getting lost, driving like a bat out of hell. She and the Spanish woman had maps to each house.... they just couldn't read them! At one point in time they asked me for advice, and I read the map correctly, AND gave them proper directions, but they didn't listen. The last time we got lost it took a good 20 minutes for them to find where we needed to be. I just gave up and Twittered from the back seat.(Ooooo, that sounded dirty!)
All in all, it was a good day. Hard work makes for a happy Blonde. I must have been doing an OK job because I was asked to come back tomorrow at 8am sharp! Perhaps tomorrow I'll get to do something besides bathrooms and floors!
It's definitely NOT easy being green..... but I'll give it a shot!
