A Nanny Email

I got a hilarious email from a Nanny today that I can relate to. And I'm sure most Nannies can relate to this.
She said:

"Every Monday, I get to work, and nothing has been cleaned or put away over the weekend.  I come into the apartment.  There are dishes in the sink, dishes in the dishwasher that need to be unloaded(which, by the way, I don't get paid to do but do it anyway), and garbage coming out of the can.  I am VERY curious what goes on with this family over a weekend since they don't seem to clean up.  I mean what am I, a cleaning lady or nanny? I get so frustrated because they leave everything for me.  Bottles that haven't been washed since Friday, clothes with all kinds of stains coming out of the hamper, and I really get annoyed about the dishwasher.  Why am I the only person unloading the dishes? Is it that difficult?  Can you pay me more to do it? Hoboken Nanny, please help me with advice!"

Ok ok. This is just awful. I have been in this situation and sometimes I am still dealing with crap like this.  The dishwasher thing sucks.  But if you are like me and get the sweats just looking at dishes in the sink, there's nothing you can do other than unload the dishwasher and go on with your day.  It takes all of 3 minutes to unload and let's hope they remember this at holiday time and up your bonus a bit.  LET US HOPE!!!!!  

Lets face it.  Working parents are sometimes lazy people who are only good at working their job. We know that not all parents should be parents.  And if they choose to live like pigs well, they are disgusting human beings.  But we should not work in that atmosphere.  I get it.  So now if it bothers you so much, suggest they get a cleaning lady or if not, they can pay you more to do it.
