Move Update #6: A Major Glitch, Then, One Apartment, Clean and Empty.
I don't know why she worked so poorly. She seemed to have no organization, and no real idea of what she was doing. She was going to clean the floor in the kitchen before she began cleaning the counters and the stove and the refrigerator. She took a glass shelf and put it into a bucket of water, and then forgot about it. Then she dumped the bucket into the toilet, and the glass shelf went right in. Fortunately, the glass shelf did not break. Unfortunately, it poked a hole in the bowl of the toilet. Ana and I worked with her for an hour, during which time she was able to clean the refrigerator. Finally, Ana told her that we needed to leave soon. She asked her to finish up in the kitchen, and then go. At this point, the cleaning woman got insulted, and said that at other places she works, she goes at her own pace. She refused to finish the kitchen, and we paid her and she left. An hour later, we were done cleaning the apartment. Tomorrow I will go there early, fix the hole in the toilet, and meet with the landlord to get back our deposit and give him the keys. Come Monday, we are in motion!
