    It's true, it's a weird situation for those of us who didn't grow up this way. We were fortunate to have a GREAT woman come for several months - she cleaned far places I would never even have noticed, and we never had any problems. Unfortunately she left for personal reasons, and her replacement was the opposite. Try as we might to explain things, she just didn't seem to get it, and I would have had to make a list of chores three pages long every week in order to get my apartment cleaned, which sort of defeats the purpose of paying someone to take care of it for me. We're now on number three, who's almost as good as the first but still not quite the same. But at least I feel like now we can say things like "oh, please don't use the entire salt shaker, I am a weird gringa who does not think salt is the only condiment," and she gets it.

    Yeah I guess we all come up with our own "systems" - for better or for worse!
