Easing The Burden

I used to enjoy the slothful luxury of having someone else make the bed when I travelled. I like to sweep into a rented room, stow the various tent cards and printed guides in the nearest drawer, put the clock radio where it is least intrusive, and if possible shift a table into a more convenient spot.

I still do so, but I learned what a heavy workload the housekeepers carry. An acquaintance mentioned that she is ordinarily responsible for two dozen rooms a day. I happened to overhear a housekeeper at last week's inn recite the same number, so I decided to add to the tip by more or less returning the room to the state in which I found it -30-
