It feels so wrong

To just sit here surfing the net while the cleaning ladies clean all around me. I'm being nice and said hello to them when they came in and when they need to clean the room I'm in I leave so they can but it still just feels so wrong and its why I like it when they come when we aren't here.

I know what you mean. My mum has a cleaning lady who's a friend of the family. I feel like I'm being an entitled B watching someone else clean around me. I have to resist the urge to offer to help her.

That's exactly it, I think oh I could do XYZ and then I think well no that's their job.

Lol yeah totally different scenario and I feel the same way. When I see him loading the dishwasher I think to myself now how do I get him to clean out the litter box and take the trash out too?

Didn't even think about offering them a drink, good idea and then I think I'll go outside and sit on the swing so I'm out of their way and I don't feel so awkward.

i feel that way when the janitor vacuums my office when i am still here - i have nothing to feel bad about - i didnt hire him,   i didnt chose that for him,    he doesnt mind at all but onsome level i have guilt - like i was raised that if i CAN do it myself = then i should ... but it passes quickly (the guilt)
