25 Housecleaners Share Their Client Horror Stories In Response To People Insisting Maids Clean During Pandemic

Housecleaners are going through a rough time right now as the coronavirus pandemic has put a hard stop on much of their work due to social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders. None of them want to risk further spreading the virus or put their loved ones in danger by continuing to work, but it’s never easy to lose your source of income, no matter what the situation may be.

That does not, however, mean that they actually miss the work. Housecleaning is not a job for those with low constitution scores, and many people are stopped from even trying it out by considering the kind of things they might have to see (and clean) in the homes of strangers. Still, these soldiers of cleanliness have labored on in relative silence.

That is, until Tabitha McIntosh snapped.

McIntosh appears to be responding to the phenomenon of well-off people complaining that they can’t get their houses cleaned due to the pandemic and are trying to get around doing it themselves by claiming that housecleaners all love their jobs and their clients. Anyone who has ever worked in the service industry knows this is extremely false, but housecleaners themselves are so fed up with the lie that they’re now sharing the horror stories previously kept tucked inside their nightmares.

McIntosh’s message inspired many other housecleaners, some of whom are absurdly not getting paid to stay home by their terrible clients right now, to share their own horror stories. Here are the worst of the worst:
