Friday I had my car washed, only it was a new experience for me. The man who washed my car came to my house and even brought his own water supply. By the time he was through, my car was spotless, inside and out. He even did the windows and polished the tires. My five-year-old car looked nearly brand new, and I didn’t have to leave my house. Next time he comes, he’s going to wax my car, and I might even have him detail it. How great is that!
I’ve seen grocery stores that have websites where you can order the items you want, and a personal shopper will do your grocery shopping for you and deliver it to your house. Some dry cleaners will pick up your dirty laundry and bring you your clean clothes. There are services that allow you to order food from the menus of many different restaurants, and they will pick up the food and bring it to your door. Ain’t life wonderful?
Well, yes, life is terrific, but it could be improved even more if the following services would be offered, too:
- Someone who will come to your house and dust your blinds. I can take care of everything else, but those blinds are a pain in the butt. On second thought, I’d like them to do the baseboards, too. Baseboards and Blinds, nothing else. Great new business idea, and I gave you the idea right here on Coming East.
- Someone who will address, sign, and mail cards to everyone on your Christmas card list. Actually writing the Christmas letter is understood.
- A body double who will go try on bathing suits and bring back the one that looks the best on her body, which would be sort of like your body.
- Someone who shows up immediately after dinner and cleans up the mess in the kitchen. Oh, wait. I already have that person. Thanks, Hubby.
What other services would make your life easier?
