Save. Spend. Splurge.

In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.


What I liked this week:

    I do in fact have a cleaner come to our home once a week, unsupervised. I just refuse to worry and be angry that they might betray what is right and ethical.

    It doesn’t matter what we think or feel, bad things, like theft of precious and/or sentimental items can and does happen. I feel more comfortable accepting that the video you show me is possible and that no thing in my life is that important. All I can control is myself and my feelings, the less I let things beyond that effect me, the better. I’m still working on it, but I try.

    Gosh for the poor stuff cleaners have to do, so what (to me) if they snoop. Seriously, in both hotels I stayed in during two weeks in the US, the tech would be fine, if the WIFI hadn’t been so intermittent, so all power to them. I read a book whilst i was away ‘Nickeled and Dimed’ and it talked about what back breaking poorly paid work cleaning is, and then the management book I’m reading suggests there’s still the right sort of people who EXCEL at cleaning, and that truly DO care to make a great clean room. Sorry, I get your a clean, private person, but I refuse to be indigent about the video :p

      Would you want someone to be allowed to be in your home and go through all your things? I see my hotel room as my home away from home and if they snoop it is an invasion of privacy. You should be indignant seeing them violate a code of ethics that is inherent to their job. It is one thing to look at things it is another to open bags and go through them. I don’t want any stranger touching my things unless they’re allowed or moving it out of the way. I don’t care that their jobs are hard and they don’t make a lot of money because I am expecting a certain level of ethics that is not being displayed. Otherwise, do another minimum wage job so you don’t sully the reputation of your occupation.

      I really hope with that attitude you don’t get things stolen from you that are sentimental when you travel and can never replace.

    I travel a lot and I was very disturbed by that video of that maid going thru someones things. There is a great chance that this may have happened to me. Makes you really think.
