This dramatic tale comes to us from Reddit. A mum-to-be shares her experience of hiring a local family cleaner to fix their house up and the destruction that their three children unleashed on her house within a matter of minutes!
A Jaw-Dropping Tale
OP, a soon-to-be mother, shares a jaw-dropping experience with an entitled house cleaner and her unruly children.
OP and her husband had hired a local husband-and-wife small business to do maintenance projects on their home before the arrival of their baby.
They Brought Their Kids Along…
The couple arrived for an initial assessment, but to OP’s surprise, they brought their three elementary-aged children along.
Despite her initial discomfort, OP likes kids and liked the idea of their house being a welcoming place for children, so she brushed it off and decided to let it slide.
They Were Too Quick
However, things quickly spiraled out of control as soon as the children entered OP’s home.
They scattered in different directions, shoes on, and started pulling toys off the shelves at lightning speed!
The parents seemed unfazed by their children’s behavior, and the mother even commented on how much her kids loved OP’s house.
OP tried to wrap up the discussion with the parents to get them to leave, but not before the children noticed the carefully organized loft, which served as a playroom and library.
Ignoring OP’s attempts to regain control of the situation, the children raced upstairs, and chaos ensued!
The children started shrieking at the sight of the room, and OP heard stomping and clanging that sounded like they were jumping off furniture.
Then came a crash that could only have been furniture falling over, and the mom didn’t bat an eyelash.
She Didn’t Care
She did nothing to intervene or reprimand her kids, and OP’s husband had to rush upstairs to assess the damage.
She Needed the Toilet
Just when things couldn’t get worse, The youngest child, four years old, urgently needed to use the bathroom.
As three of the four bathrooms required service, the only one available was their master bathroom, where they were keeping chicks in an incubator.
An Accident Waiting to Happen
OP showed the child where to go, but she got distracted by the chicks and screamed for the older kids upstairs to come to see.
The older two came barreling and yelling through OP’s bedroom and bathroom with shoes on, and the small one didn’t quite make it to the toilet in all the excitement!
15 Minute Hurricane
All of this unfolded in just 15 minutes – a whirlwind of destruction and mayhem in OP’s once-serene home.
OP couldn’t believe what was happening, and the entitlement of the house cleaner and her children left her stunned.
She Said What?!
She thought it was bizarre and horrible, but thought she would just have them do the job tomorrow and not work with them again.
But then, two of the kids started throwing tantrums when it was time for them to leave, and the mom said, “It’s OK! We’ll be back, so you can play more with them tomorrow!”
Of Course She Had to Cancel
The mother’s casual attitude towards her children’s destructive behavior and her assumption that the OP would provide childcare for them while she worked was infuriating. OP quickly decided to cancel their services.
The Entitlement Was Crazy
OP couldn’t believe it. Did the mom expect to leave her children unsupervised in their home while performing tasks clearly unsafe for children in closed-off rooms for seven hours?
She was almost too shocked to even be upset. She checked upstairs and found a shelf of books partially toppled, every toy in the living room in pieces on the floor, and pee not in the toilet.
It happened so fast that she couldn’t even process it all.
The Cleaner Had the Complete Opposite Intended Effect!
OP was at a loss for words and struggled to comprehend what just happened in her own home.
She couldn’t fathom how someone could bring their children to work and leave them unsupervised to wreak havoc in someone else’s house.
A Lack of Professionalism
She had trusted the house cleaner and her husband to do a professional job, but their lack of consideration for her home and property was appalling.
OP had expected a simple assessment of the projects and negotiation of pay, but instead, she found herself dealing with a nightmare situation caused by entitled behavior.
It Was a Shock to the System
OP’s encounter with an entitled house cleaner and her unruly children was a shocking and surreal experience.
The disregard for OP’s home and property, the lack of supervision for the children, and the mother’s assumption that the OP would provide childcare while she worked are unacceptable. It’s crazy what some people think is acceptable!
Redditors empathized with her tale. One user said, “Yikes. Glad you are canceling. Hope you tell them exactly why you are canceling. None of that experience was normal for a business transaction.”
What do you think about this tale of mayhem? Have you ever experienced something similar?
