NaBloPoMo | Day 20: Dear Cleaning Lady

Dear Cleaning Lady,

I’m sure you’re not aware of my rule. And I am really not trying to be rude. However, you should probably know that NO ONE is allowed to look at me, much less talk to me, until after I’ve had at least two cups of coffee. And no one is exempt from the rule.

Not even you, Chatty McTalkerson.

Now please, for the love of all things bacon, shut the f*ck up and dust!


PS: In totally unrelated news, my novel is coming along nicely. You can see my progress over at NaNoWriMo.

    I wish I had a rule but I don’t, do I? Maybe after work I don’t want to be bothered.

  • Mariann

    Must be nice to have a cleaning lady. Sigh…

  • Allyson

    I’m with you, 100%! Even my small children know better than to talk to me before coffee. Often the first words I hear from my children are, “Have you had your coffee yet, Mommy?”

  • That can totally be a rule!

  • It sure is. But I still clean my own bedroom, all OCD style, three times a week.

  • Smart kids!!

    My thoughts exactly! (Except it’s not directed at my cleaning lady – ’cause I, sadly, don’t have one… it’s my hubby and kids who receive my wrath if they try to talk to me beforehand.)

  • Oh I taught my son YEARS ago ­ never to speak to me until AFTER my coffee!

  • Lucy

    My husband brings me my coffee in bed, that says it all 🙂 Oh,and I am so glad your novel is moving right along,yeah for you!!! I can’t wait to come to a book signing!!!

  • Awww!! XOXOX

  • “Now please, for the love of all things bacon, shut the f*ck up and dust!” Ha ha ha! Classic line, thanks for the larf!

  • The last thing you want is a dustup with the cleaning lady. : )

    I’m a bitch in the morning.

  • Exactly.

    I need to go over the rule too! I’ve got a house full this week, and in addition, sadly, NONE of them clean!

  • I get up and walk at 6 AM with a friend every morning M-F so I do actually talk to someone before I drink or eat anything but past that…everyone needs to leave me alone for awhile. I want to have my breakfast and get my day started peacefully…slowly and quietly.

  • AMEN AMEN AMEN!!! Coffee… I can NOT wake up without it. I REQUIRE it!!!!

  • Definitely enforce the rule!

  • That sounds like a GREAT way to start the day!

  • Ditto!

    Oh, hell, no. She’d didn’t try to chat you up BEFORE the coffee. I applaud your patience. I was halfway expecting for you to stab her with shiv (or maybe a spoon). Nobody messes with Mel in the AM, beotch.

  • BAhahHAhHAHahh!

  • Small Town Mommy

    What is it about cleaning ladies and chatting. I am trying to work and ours is chat, chat, chatting away.

  • So annoying, right?

  • Hahaha. I can relate!

  • 🙂

  • Well, she should be pretty clear on this rule by now, I’d say! 😉

  • Lolz!
