The Question Club
1. i was offered a job to clean a very close friend's house. her mother has a really bad back and can't really get around to clean, and i was asked if i'd want to de-clutter her bedroom (i hear it's really cluttered and could take 3-4 hours) and then do some maintenance cleaning every week to week and a half.
i've never done this before and since i'll be paid under the table, i'm not sure how much i should be expecting. i don't know how much house cleaners get paid, and i refuse to accept too much from her mother since i know that she'd clean if she physically could, but her mother and her daughter are really sweet people and while i will maintain a professional relationship with her mother, i will not take advantage of her sweetness.
have any of you ever cleaned houses before? their house is by no means dirty, just a little cluttered and there is a lot of dog hair. please let me know of your experiences and how much you got paid to clean houses.
oh, i guess i should say that it takes about 30 minutes to get there, but after i'm there and i'm done cleaning, i'd 99% of the time be hanging out with her daughter/my best friend, so it's not like i'd have to be making special trips JUST to clean.
what are you experiences like?
2. have any of you ever gotten pulled over and gotten out of the ticket? how'd you manage it? does crying actually work? crying to get out of a ticket and it actually working doesn't seem plausible to me.
EDIT: i should say that i am, by no means, trying to get out of a ticket or am spiteful in regards to getting a ticket. i just honestly, don't see how people can lie or cry or do anything else and get out of a ticket. all of the evidence is against you, so how would you manage getting out of it?
