I don't have any friends who clean houses, but if I did, I don't think I'd offer them the job. Not if house cleaners expect you to put stuff away on their behalf! We have a lot of stuff and would refuse to put any of it away. This is our house, and our lifestyle.
Deal with it, or don't take the job, would be my thought. (And wash the darn edible body paint off the bed while you're at it!)

I have a cleaner that ran the locker room at an exclusive athletic club that I used to belong to. Apparently it was too exclusive - it shut down for financial reasons. Anyway, i convinced him to leverage the trust that all of these wealthy guys had in him - he held the keys to get in anywhere with anyone's wallet, jewelry,etc, plus everyone felt bad about the club shutting down and putting him out of work. he's turned it into a very successful business cleaning homes with his wife, and I'm comfortable allowing him into my home to clean when I'm not there.

Second, I have two good female friends, one of whom in very need and the other of whom only knows what her floor looks like on the days she moves into or out of a home. They are coming to an arrangement where one cleans for the other every 2 weeks or so. In large part this is based on both trust and the large quantity of sex toys and valubles that are around, and which the messy one doesn't want to have to worry about. Hoping it works for both of them, I'm happier with someone that I trust but isn't a friend.

Ok Al...here comes your turn on the hot seat...
Do any of these toys bear any sort of vague resemblance to my avatar?

Y'know, when BbbamI asks that question with her leather boots sticking out of her avatar, then it's intriguing.

When you ask that question with Bugs Bunny snickering and asking "What's up, Doc?!?", then it's probably not the image that the "toy" manufacturer was hoping to inspire...

A nominal resemblance only.

Actually, I'm not sure if that one ZOOOOOOMed overhead or not.

My sense of humor can be ultra-subtle, but it is consistently warped.

I see every indication that Nords did get it. I thought his post was spot on, or on the spot, or whatever

Back in middle school our kid was going to do a science project that involved studying the behavior of our her bunny, and his response to various stimuli. She was going to call it "Rabbit Habits", but a quick Google search revealed that would be a whole 'nother type of research project into various stimuli responses...

I'm just sayin' that Bugs Bunny doesn't carry the same marketing caché for that category of product which perhaps this celebrity could offer:

This is the image the post exchanges conjured in my mind.




Hmm... The reputation of the bunnies of course has to precede Hefner's selection of the icon for his enterprise.

Anyway, I cannot imagine a Bugs Bunny sex toy.

Oh wait! I know why! Bugs Bunny is a he!

I wish you all could hear me cracking up at these posts.

Upon further review, it has been determined that Nords DID get my joke.

We are still waiting to hear from Al....

I don't know Nords personally, but to call him "innocent"?

On the other hand, when I was younger, if I weren't married early, I would easily fall prey to cougars. I posted a music video in a "cougar" thread, and now cannot get that song out of my head.

I would pay money-a lot of it-to wipe this image from my mind.
