Complainy Complainersons

If you don't mind me complaining for a minute here... which, let's be real, even if you do, it's too late, this is already written and published and hey, I think I still can count on one hand how many folks actually read here on a day to day so HI!... I'm a little frustrated about something out of my control.

(Yes, I know, most things are out of my control, but bear with me here!)

Our building's windows get professionally cleaned a few times a year.  We always (except for that one time so "almost always" is more accurate) get a notice telling us that they'll be here in a few days and to please remove any screens and have the windows down.

Well, this time, they've told us that the window cleaners will be here for TWO days potentially between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and so they want us to have our windows closed during that time.

You know... in July.  When it's hot.  And any little breeze helps!

Le sigh.

I have no idea why two days this time, but my guess is that the window cleaners said "hey, we'll either be there Tuesday or Wednesday depending" and the person booking didn't or wasn't able to get a more detailed time.

I'm kind of annoyed.  Or pretty annoyed, depending on how the weather goes on whatever day they do manage to get here.

I think I'm annoyed because I've been home on a day they've cleaned before and assuming it's the same company it really doesn't take them all that long at all, so I just wish someone could be a little more specific with the time they'll be here.  I'm hoping that I'll be able to tell once they've done my windows and can open them back up again.  Otherwise it might be a stuffy two days!

As someone with time anxiety, I hate that silly "sometime in the next 8 hours but we don't know when" BS. Especially since they sometimes don't even make it in that incredibly broad time line!
