Pitch In!

51 Sussex is a picturesque setting that provides a summerful of pleasure.  But, if truth be told, it doesn't stay that way by itself!  It depends on all of us getting off our pampered behinds and doing our part.  Here, we are the cabana boys!

In the beginning of the season, Stephen L and Barry tastefully landscape the deck and pool areas.  It's up to all of us to keep it going for the season.  So here are a few things we should all take the initiative to do...and, fortunately, none of them are too taxing:

  • Sweep the deck.
  • Water the plants.
  • Vacuum & skim the pool.
  • Tidy the place up a bit.

If you don't know how to do any of the things listed above, private lessons can be arranged!

BEFORE YOU GO...
Make sure the following chores have been taken care of in your house:

  • Vacuum the carpet.
  • Clean the bathroom (Yes, you'll need rubber gloves).
  • Empty the trash.
  • Run the dishwasher.
  • Wipe off the counters.
  • Turn off the air conditioners.
  • Turn off lights and ceiling fan.
  • Turn off pool heater.
  • Leave the parking passes.
  • Lock the doors.

To help us remember, a handy reminder checklist is posted on the refrigerators of both houses.

Now here's a thought: leave the house just a little bit cleaner than the way you found it (it will certainly be clean when you arrive).  Your housemates coming in after you will be thrilled that everything is not only in order, but that it looks so inviting.  You will earn extra brownie points for this! If kindness to those that follow is not a motivator for you, perhaps you should ask a senior house member to recount the Legend of Biela Mae.


 


 

Poodlism:

"This is another bright spot.  We've managed to weed out the lazy louts, and now have housemates who know how to pick up (both around the compound and at the Double L)."
