Questions you don’t want to be asked..

Posted by Pepper on June 15, 2012

Question: What do you do, when you peep into the bathroom and see the maid cleaning it with surprising vigour?
Answer: You smile. Who doesn’t want to shower in a sparkling, fresh smelling bathroom?

Question: What do you do, when you happen to see a blur of familiar blue in her hands?
Answer: You panic.

Question: What do you do, when you suspect it is your blue bath sponge that is being used as an instrument to scrub the bathroom floors and drain?
Answer: You scream.

Question: What do you do, when it dawns upon you, that this may not necessarily have been an isolated incident?
Answer: You cringe.

Question: What do you do, when you decide to confront your fears and ask the maid if she has used that bath sponge for bathroom cleaning purposes at an earlier time, and she says ‘Yes’, with a ‘what else do you think I have been using!’ look plastered on her face?
Answer: You cry.

Question: What do you do, after a few moments of crying, you realise that the maid is using another blue sponge, and that your bath sponge is lying safe and untouched, in its original place?
Answer: You cry again. This time with relief.

    Imagine the same situation with your toothbrush being used to clean the comb. Thats what I went through. That moment, when you realise that they weren’t the same brush. The relief you feel is simply unexplainable..:-)

      Lol. Good for you. In my maid’s defense though, the blue sponge she was using was handed to her by my mom. So I can’t be blaming her.
