and yet, when i received an e-mail from my landlady the other day i was truly shocked and appalled to find out that our all-in-white apartment does not include weekly maid service. instead we have to pay 12 pesos an hour ($3) for such luxuries. i am shocked.
and of course the bolshevik is refusing to pay. he thinks we can change our own sheets and mop our own floors. (as i have done my whole adult life)
but now all of a sudden i cannot believe the injustice of it all that we do not have these services for free. surely, i shouldn't have to clean my own dishes 7 days a week? i am entitled to a dish-free day, no?
i'll tell you, after only six weeks of having someone come in weekly to do dishes, mop floors, wipe down surfaces, and change the sheets ... i have become quite used to this luxurious lifestyle. i don't know if i can ever go back to the way things were.
