The internet was stunned by an employee’s long to-do list that they claimed they had to complete in under an hour or else they would laid off†
The post, which has received more than 22,800 votes since it was posted on June 28, was captioned: “My job tells me if I’m not in all this [an] I’m fired.”
Tasks in the list included “sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming the floor”, “kitchen lighting is free of insects”, and “air-conditioning ventilation free of dust”, among many other tasks.
On the piece of paper, the employee must tick which cleaning tasks in the entrance, kitchen and living room were completed.
news week has contacted Chloe-Wolf for comment.
The post attracted many commentators who supported the employee and shared posts that seemed to understand why the hotel rooms they had stayed in were not as clean as they expected.
One Reddit user said, “This explains the condition of most hotel rooms.”
Another added: “We’ve ensured your safety by underpaying and overburdening with those who are essential to the job. Have fun.”
A third posted: “This is probably what ‘deep cleansing’ has meant for this whole pandemic.”
Others pointed to their experiences of watching employees perform a supposed thorough cleaning of the workplace.
One posted: “My company praised itself for running a CDC (Centers of Disease Control and Prevention) level thoroughly clean when someone on site reported COVID-like symptoms. One night I was shown the deep cleaning.
“It was two guys from the cleaning crew, two spray bottles with some pink liquid and a couple of rolls of Bounty.
“They sprayed the work surface/desk with a good amount of pink stuff. Then they took a handful of paper towels and wiped the desk. Then they wiped the keyboard, mouse and a few monitors with the same now wet paper towels. wiping the arms and headrest of the chair and that was it.”
