Mom's Cleaning Service

Memorandum

Date: 7 January 2009

To: All kids who don't do chores

From: Mom

Subject: Mom's Cleaning Service

Effective immediately, the Nelson household will be offering a cleaning service for your convenience. To request the cleaning service simply fail to perform, in a timely manner, your previously agreed-upon chores. The cleaning service (Mom) will do them for you. Just like that.

Price List

Make Bed - 25 cents

Clean Hamster Cage - $1.00

Pick up Clothes - 10 cents per item

Clean Room - 50 cents

At this time, Mom's Cleaning Service is only able to offer a limited number of specific cleaning specialties. However over time, and as you grow in responsibility, more fantastically simple chores may be assigned for you to shirk, at which time, Mom will charge you for doing those too.

Payment due at the time services are performed.

I love you.

Man....I charge $5 for their rooms...obviously your boys' rooms aren't as dirty as my kids! Thanks for the laugh...

Debbie said...

Wow! For those prices will you come and clean my house ;)

Maybe I should clarify...

Prices are based on an income of $12 a month. If you make more than that, I would charge accordingly.

Unfortunately, I am no longer accepting new clients due to work overload.

Love it! I'm totally laughing right now becuase I think we all have felt or feel this way, I love that you voice it! Remember Ally Fife? She used to charge her husband money if he didn't do the dishes and she had to do them in the morning!

Afton said...

Who could forget Ally? I didn't know that little fun fact about her though.

After some practice, you'll get really good and be able to charge more because you'll be more skilled....
