I feel like I could die of embarrassment right now. My FI and I use the service Handy to have our apartment cleaned every 2 weeks (think of it as uber for maid services). Our Handy professionals were two really kind, young, and polite men. When FI and I arrived home it was the cleanest our apartment has ever been… every inch of the house was cleaned (including wiping down small appliances)… so here’s where the embarrassment begins.
This morning as I was kissing FI goodbye I noticed our black riding crop on his bed side table. I asked, “Did you put that there last night?” and he said, “No it was like this when we got home, it must have been stuck in our sheets”. I then opened up our closet where we store some other items (ropes and paddles) in a suitcase. I remember the suitcase having ropes spilling out of it but I never figured that they would clean the closet. This morning the naughty suitcase was nicely closed and zipped up and positioned in the closet standing up (not how I had left it!). Here’s the worst one… I went to put my ering on (which I keep in a jewelry dish in my bedside table b/c my cats will knock it on the ground) and I find my spare pair of glasses in the drawer right on top of my personal toys. I don’t keep my glasses in my bedside table EVER. But there they were… amongst all my other goodies. GAAAHH
I really want to have these guys clean the house again and mark them as “pro team” members because the place just looks so freaking clean but I’m mortified to interact with them again now that they’ve seen all this stuff.
What do you think? Do cleaning professionals see this stuff all the time so it’s no big deal? Am I overreacting?
Has anything embarrassing ever happened with your own “toys”?

I don’t have a cleaning team or person. However, I’m sure it happens all the time and they’re professionals so they know to be professional in their workplace and dealings with customers. If they were good, call them back and don’t act awkward. Having a sex life should be natural so don’t stress it.

somathemagical : Hahahahahahahaha sorry, this is amazing!
I bet they see it ALL the time to be honest. If you’re embarrassed, just make sure you tidy your toys away before they come now you know how thorough they are 🙂

somathemagical : I get why you would be embarassed, but I am sure they have seen and dealt with a whole lot worse. Sound like they did a great job of cleaning and tidying up! lol

I want their number now. We need a good cleaning around here and they sound spot on!
It isn’t a big deal, they have probably dealt with much worse and what you have is par for the course.

I totally get why you are feeling embarassed, but I wouldn’t worry about it too much. They are professionals, they’ve seen it all!

soymilk : That’s true they were really painfully poliet calling me ma’am before I left them and also ma’am in text when they were done so they were really professional. I just need to calm down.
stephisaur : UUGHH! I know right? I have used the service before and all the other cleaners ignored the closet. Your laughing makes me feel better!
MsBeer : They were very thorough! Haha
theatrejulia : It’s actually an app! The service has been hit or miss. Some are REALLY good others not so much. Once a cleaning professional asked me if I had swiffer wet pads… I said no but I have a mop and a bucket…

somathemagical : I wouldn’t have expected them to clean it either tbh!
I do feel bad for laughing, but it just struck me as so unusual haha
*note to self* if I ever hire cleaners, must move toy from pyjama drawer lmao

I laughed sorry!!
You are not the first house they cleaned filled with goodies and you will not be the last. It’s like getting a bikini wax- you care much more than the tech.
Hire them again!
theatrejulia : in line with the OP- handy is super hit or miss

somathemagical : They seem simply amazing, so mark them as “pro team” and maybe just hide away your things next time 🙂

I get why you’re embarrassed. But I really doubt they cared. They might have laughed for a moment and moved on. No shame in any of this.
Hire them again since they did such a great job!

asobos : that part about the bikini wax puts it all into perspective. Spot on!!
happyowlbee : I will be compulsively checking for anything that is out in the open next time for sure!

Hahahahaha!!!! This reminds me of the Sex and the City episode where Miranda’s maid kept replacing her vibrator with a virgin Mary statue. 😂
I agree with other posts-they’ve probably seen it all before-but I get why you’re embarrassed.

Maybe nextime they will make a secret door behind a mirror where all of your goodies will be displayed ready for use!

So, my mom used to clean houses and when I was late teens/early twenties I would help out every now and again, from my little bit of experience I can tell you there are far worse things than the cleaning people seeing your toys! If it were me, honestly, I would giggle to myself, then move on with my day and probably never think of it again. As long as you don’t leave undies with skid marks laying around (seriously) it’s all good!
