You Get What You Pay For
It was discussed here yesterday. Your cheap, individual maid needs your money today. But tomorrow could be a different story. She'll leave you at the drop of a hat. She'll leave you because the money's better somewhere else. It could be that her husband got a big raise and she doesn't need to work any longer. It could be that she got a full-time job with benefits and guaranteed hours. Or it could be the more common reason.
The reason she is probably leaving you is because someone else is willing to pay her more money for her services. You're not really her customer. You're not really her customer because she's not really a business.
Take it from this person. Her frustration will one day be your frustration.
Here's a great comment from this frustrated "customer",
"How can she quit?!? Is my house that bad? I hope it's just that she's too busy. No, I don't hope that. She was mine first!!! She needs to drop one of those dirty house people and come back to me!"
You already know this, but it bears repeating............
You get what you pay for. Everytime.
