Adrienne talks about cleaning up her apartment.
Todd: Adrienne, we're going to talk about cleaning! So, first of all, how often do you clean, like your apartment?
Adrienne: Thoroughly, I would say I clean once a week.
Todd: So, do you consider yourself a clean person?
Adrienne: I consider myself an organized person.
Todd: OK. So, in your house what is the one room you hate cleaning?
Adrienne: Probably the bathroom, which includes the shower, the sink, toilet. (Yeah) All together.
Todd: Yeah, so, why?
Adrienne: I just think it's the grossest part of the house. It always seems to accumulate the most dirt and grime (Yeah) pretty disgusting.
Todd: Yeah, it's hard to get the stuff off the tiles. (Right) You got to scrub and scrub and it's still brown or green or whatever color it is.
Adrienne: Exactly. It's just a difficult place to get into to clean, and there's lots of small spaces to get into and.
Todd: Yeah! In Japan it's weird because they have these little portable bathrooms, you know, they're all plastic so,
Adrienne: It's easy. You just take the sprayer and spray the whole room.
Todd: Yeah! I'm convinced that they drop those bathrooms in a, with a helicopter. They just drop them right in there. You got everything, you know.
Adrienne: Easy! Convenient! Efficient!
Todd: What about laundry?
Adrienne: I don't like really doing any type of manual labor, but I don't mind doing laundry from time to time.
Todd: Yeah, I like laundry actually. I like the smell of the clothes when you finish.
Adrienne: Yeah, that's a good part of it, but I don't like to actually to do the work, washing!
Todd: Yeah, actually, I like to clean. That's why I have this question. (Mm) I'm a clean freak. Like, I like washing dishes. I like doing laundry. Yeah!
Adrienne: Yeah, that's not fun for me. (No!) I'd rather sleep given the choice.
Todd: Like you can pay me and I'll clean your apartment.
Adrienne: Oh, sounds good. Perfect!
Todd: How much? How much would you pay me?
Adrienne: Um, see, going rate for a maid these day, Todd?
Todd: Maid! That's a sexist comment!
Adrienne: It is a sexist comment! But it is, the going rate for a maid,
Todd: Male cleaning attendant!
Adrienne: I don't think that's what they're called. They'd still call them a maid service. Um, I don't know.I think it's about 15 dollars an hour.
Todd: Ooh! You'd pay me 15 dollars an hour?
Adrienne: No, that's the going rate. That's not what I'll pay you.
Todd: I thought I was going to make some money!
Adrienne: Well, I thought I was going to get a discount.
Todd: This web site's expensive.
Adrienne: Oh, right, right, right!
Todd: So I need the money.
