Housecleaning Angel - Your house is pretty messy.
Me - I know. (thinking, that's why you're here!)
Housecleaning Angel - No really, you're not a very good cleaner.
Me - (feeling a bit awkward) Yep, you got me there.
Housecleaning Angel - Do ya at least cook for your family?
Me - Oh yes! I love to cook!
Housecleaning Angel - (with a look of relief at her partner) Good. At
least Matt can count on that.
Punk Car Cleaner Kid - Your car was really messy.
Me - I know. (thinking - that's why we're here!)
Punk Car Cleaner Kid - No, really, I found all sorts of junk in there!
Me - Yeah. I have 2 kids.
Punk Car Cleaner Kid - Seriously! There was like wrappers and candy . . .(making shoveling gestures with his hands)
Me - (I can't hold it back any longer) THAT'S. WHY. WE'RE. HERE.
Owner - We usually charge $79, but we really had to spend a lot of extra time . . .
Me - You know what? I log about 30,000 miles a year in that car and have never had it detailed. You don't have to tell me how bad it was. I live there. I will gladly pay the extra charge - no worries.
