Hired a guy to clean the carpets after we leave. He asked how dirty the carpets were (to quote) and I said quite clean with only a few spots, I was thinking of just spotting them myself. Copped a tirade about how this wouldnt be good enough for a RE and they could see it differently to me, etc. etc. After he stopped, I said I was just giving you an idea of how clean they are. So, hired the guy, then realised the cleaners should come in first and him last, so rang him back quickly to change date (so that he wouldnt miss any bookings for the first date). He was absolutely adamant that I leave cash on the kitchen bench, which I said I wouldnt do as the cleaners (who I had hired out of the paper and didnt know from Adam, were coming in first and if the money disappeared he would not do the carpets. Absolutely adamant he wouldnt accept cheque, etc. so I said when finished take the key down to the RE (600mts at end of street) and they will give you the cash. Went on and on about how that was an extra trip, just leave the cash etc etc, so I said I would lthink about it and ring again in the morning. Received this text msg: "Forget about it, supaclean aint cleaning the carpets. You shoulnt ring trades people after 6pm" Can you believe it? My daughter had said if things dont seem right in the beginning, they will only get worse and I think she was right.
