Stood up by the maid service

Scheduled for 1 today and a total no show.

At 1:15 the customer service told me "wait 10 minutes she'll be there."

At 1:45 the customer service lectured me that the 1 O'Clock time they put on the 48 hour mandatory cancel policy is just an approximation - - that it really means she will be there anytime between 1 and 2 and I'm just supposed to wait for her.

At 2:20 I cancelled the servivce I've had for a year now.

You're a maid honey. I put up with this "just cool your heels I'm on my own happy ass schedule" from my doctor and dentist ... but not my maid.

You sound crazy OP.

I condole you.

Mr. B never had this problem.

Why don't you simply ring downstairs for one of the other maids?

OMG R3. I couldn't have said it better.

This happened once in a year?

I found an ad in the local Stop N Shop for a housecleaner (a maid is someone who does more than clean) and I've had this wonderful woman from Poland for two years. I would never fire her if she showed up late because I actually see her as a real person.

Noblesse oblige.

My God, OP! I hope she died in a painful accident!! That's really the best she deserves!

You fired someone for being late exactly once?


Agreed: you sound cray cray.

Sure you could have R6. if you had read any of about 7 million posters who over the last 5 years have copied that same tired unoriginal meme hoping newbies like you will laugh at something that bores the shit out of the rest of us because it has been used more often than Paris Hilton's .... well, you know. All you had to do is copy it, too.

There is a difference between late and no show, R11. Try reading the part that is in black. It works better that way.

People--you should be abale to recognize this variety of troll. I call it the Faux Haughty. Play along, but don't think this really happened.

OP counts the silver and marks the liquor bottles before she leaves for the day.

To be fair to myself, R12, I believe I was the very first DLer to use the Darfur orphan meme. So, if anyone gets to use to death, it's me.

Clearly the OP comes from a poor upbringing and has never hired help before. "Maid" should be "Cleaning Lady." And using a service? That would be Merry Maids.

Poor OP - thought we'd all be impressed.
