I don't think I want to know...

Getting my coffee outside the motel office, and there is a conclave of maids.

"How are you feeling today?" One them asks another.


"Well, I know you weren't feeling too well yesterday. Don't worry, we're going to have someone else do THAT ROOM today."

"Oh. Good."

"Just remember to flush the toilet before you do anything else...."

"Yeah, but that doesn't always work. You'd think they've had heard there is such a thing as indoor plumbing."

"Wellllll....let's do it."

So I'm following the maids down the long hallway. They're marching like the hero team in an action movie.

"That was an interesting conversation..." I venture.

They all turn and look at me. When they see I'm just curious, they start to smile.

"Is it really that bad?" I ask.

"Oh, I could tell you stories..." the ringleader says. "People are disgusting."

"I don't think I want to know," I says. "But....can't you just refuse service?"

She throws out her arms. "Nope."

Maids can get some real slobs in the rooms. Bet most people don't even leave a few bucks tip in their room each day?

Other slob-revealing jobs: Appliance repair man, Police officer, ETM.
