Remember when I wrote about wanting to fire my cleaning guy? Well, a few days ago he quit.
He blamed it on my cat. He said his cat allergies were really bad and he was getting constant infections thanks to my cat. Thanks to the one and a half hours a day he spent cleaning my apartment every other week. I guess it could be true, despite the fact that he never ever mentioned anything about this to me until I got to the point where it was so bad that he apparently had to quit.
In his usual style, he didn't tell me he was quitting and that he wouldn't be showing up until it was an hour before he was supposed to come. There was apparently no possible time he could've told me about this until right before.
I don't get it. He was so good when he started out. Then he gradually morphed into being completely unreliable. I still don't understand how he forgot to take the check I left for him on multiple occasions. I gave him several opportunities to quit if he wanted, and he never took it. You know you don't trust somebody when they tell you they couldn't show it because they were in a car accident, and you think they were lying.
Also, weirdly, he left his vacuum cleaner in our garage. Like, forever.
My husband and I disagreed over whether to change our locks. The cleaning guy didn't offer to return our key, even though I didn't ask. I just wanted to have the locks changed, either way. My husband said that he was the one who quit, and if we were trusting him with our key before, why wouldn't we trust him to have it now? I still wanted to change the locks.
