How good is your ayi?

How good is your ayi at cleaning?

Do you actually know how good your ayi is?

This is something I've been discussing with my wife for a very long time. According to my wife our ayi is far above the normal standard and today I wanted to test just how good she is. The arguments have always been about how she cleans because it's very obvious to me that the cleaning isn't done properly.

  1. The same cloth has been used to clean cupboards, shelves and tabletops for months without being laundered, though we have told her to use a new one each time.
  2. When washing the floors she just rearranges the dirt because the job is not done properly.
  3. She is also very slow compared to me and I have a herniated disk preventing me from working fast.
  4. She washes the floor and then vacuums.
  5. She uses a watery cloth on top of electronic equipment like TV, DVD and Surround System.
  6. She needs close to two hours for cleaning. I can do exactly the same as her in 43 minutes, and I have to struggle with a herniated disk!

Everybody knows that ayi's here have a very high salary. The salary far outperforms the one of a highly educated young Shanghainese, so the question is, do you get what you pay for?

The picture above is what the water looked like after I cleaned the floor in our kitchen and living room, which was after the ayi had done exactly the same.

Below are pictures of what the floor looked like after ayi and me :-) (it only took me 3 minutes to do it right)
