I will gladly pay extra for Guacamole 🥑 but when I 👂 hear the knock 🚪 of the…
Housekeeper at my Hotel Room I immediately feel rushed and the last thing I am thinking about is my extra time is causing someone an extra long day.
It Starts With The Guest And Ends At The Front Desk
I stayed at the www.junghotel.com/ in New ⚜️ Orleans recently and my room was of course not ready 🙁. I mean it’s New Orleans so I could go grab 🥃 a drink but not once did I think of why my room wasn’t ready🤔. The last idiot guest 😤who drank one too many New Orleans Coctails on Canal Street may have caused more work than usual in a first room.
causing the Housekeeper 💁🏻 to work extra hard and extra fast. This may have caused the work to get behind, and the front desk to have to break the news to me that my room isn’t ready. 🙁
Yes they are being paid an hourly wage 💰 but that extra work is now cutting into her personal time ⌚️ and threatening her job. Time is money. ⌚️ 💰
THE INVISIBLE WORKERS TIME IS ON A SCHEDULE LIKE YOURS
The Hotel Housekeepers are typically allowed 15 minutes 😳 to clean a stay over guests room and 30 minutes when you check out😳. Imagine doing that 30-40 times a day and what you may run into along the way. 😩
The Lost Personal Connection
It’s customary to tip the car valet 🛎 because you personally gave them the keys to your car 🚗 and they personally delivered the keys 🔑 and car 🚗 back to you. It’s also customary to tip the 🛎bellhop 💁🏽 as they personally take your luggage and personally bring it to your room 🚪 But the invisible work of the housekeeper 🛏who arrived to do her job and finished ✅without making a personal connection is lost in the rush.⚡️
If you’re a Mom👩👦👦 you can empathize with being an invisible worker. Yes we do laundry but the pre treating of stains, emptying crayons out of pockets and separating is not seen. Just the finished job.
Now that we can empathize let’s realize that extra costs extra. So the next time ⌚️you ask for a late checkout think about the Housekeeper 💁🏻that now has a longer day😴. Guacamole 🥑 is extra so why isn’t the extra time ⌚️of a housekeeper💁🏻.
Yes they have an employer to designate an hourly pay rate for the average job but we all live different! So tip the invisible worker and join the PayItForward movement.💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰💰
Thanks to Jeffrey Fry for the life quote on Facebook and Daron K. Roberts for sharing with Facebook that his Dad taught him this way of life and he lives it.
WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT
Before we even step foot inside to provide Housecleaning and Apartment cleaning services in Austin and Dallas we meet the client and space in person. We can guesstimate the time it will take but we can’t guesstimate how your day may be before the housekeeper arrived and how that may cause extra work and time. It’s just nice to be nice so if you know your home isn’t in its usual shape and needs some extra time leave something extra to make your Housekeepers day. A little goes a long way!
