This is so First World that I've annoyed myself. But I'm still annoyed.
We had a specific housekeeper for 8 years. She was wonderful. Not only was she great at her job (and we recommended her all over the place), but we both like to cook and would exchange recipes. I know the cliche about "like family," but it was great seeing her kids grow up and all that. But she stopped working last year, and, six months ago, after a few recommendations, we have a new monthly housekeeper. He doesn't speak English well, so some of it may be misunderstanding things, but he also just lacks common sense. Today, I am totally annoyed because I am in the middle of Thanksgiving prep. He switched from yesterday to today to clean. When he got here a little while ago, I told him that I was going to be cooking a few things for the next hour, so the kitchen was going to be occupied, but first, I had to run to the store. He seemed to understand when I said that. But when I got back, he was... cleaning the kitchen. So as he's cleaning, I'm messing it all up again, chopping vegetables and peeling things. He finally went to vacuum elsewhere, but I was annoyed. It got worse when I fed our cats. One cat steals the other's food, so I feed one in the living room with the door closed. It only takes about 10 minutes. So I fed them, went upstairs to check a recipe, go back downstairs and... he's opened the LR door, left it open, and Fat Cat is happily face-first in Little Cat's lunch.
I miss our old housekeeper, darn it.
