The Perfect Maid Crumbles

". . .We clean for nearly three hours, but Maggie charges for two. In a fair world, the client and her relative would say: Wait, we owe you more. But neither says a word. Instead, the elderly relative makes us mop her laminate floors all over again, this time with the grain so the streaks don't show. . ."

Fourth part of Jan Wong's series as an undercover maid in Canada.
