Ok, so partly because I have expended a great deal of my creativity on our September newsletter and on a bunch of new Craigslist ads and partly because of the full moon recently (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it) I have decided to share with you some Freedom-isms.
If you are a customer or become a customer of our service and you happen to be home when we clean, you may hear some of these.
Blanket-Bless: Usually issued to Bri in homes that have pets or when she is on dusting duty. Poor thing has allergies and sneezes a LOT. To avoid an endless string of “Bless-You’s” we simply issue a Blanket-Bless.
Bread Crumbs: This is what happens when cleaning towels inadvertently fall out of the bucket either on the way into or out of the home. As in; “Mike’s leaving Bread Crumbs, again.”
Lights off, rugs down: Final checklist before leaving a home
Pss!: This word (?) is multi-purposed and can be used whenever a more appropriate phrase cannot be found quick enough. It can be uttered out of frustration. For example, if we are leaving a bathroom and turn off the lights only to see a streak in the mirror. “Pss!” It can be used as a training tool. “How do you get this gunk off of the stove top?” “Just give it a pss! and then use a microfiber to buff it.” It has come in handy and is generally credited to Mardi.
‘S All Good: This phrase is usually preceded by a loud noise and is given as reassurance to the rest of the team that no property or physical damage came about as a result of the aforementioned noise. More often than not the noise was a result of a bottle of cleaner being knocked over or a mop falling down. Failure to hear ” ‘S all good!” would probably result in someone looking for the insurance agent’s phone number. Fortunately, we’ve never had to do that.
I hope you have enjoyed these “Freedom-isms”. I’m sure we’ll be adding more and we will keep you updated.
