Keep in mind it was written in 1976

I didn’t read that part. :o

Too bad the guy didn’t see it as a way to build a long-term legitimate business as opposed to the ‘quick cash’ mentality.

“$200,000 homes along the beach” Oh you know it was written in the 70’s for sure lol. I think those people made a better investment then he did lol. Let’s see 200k home on the beach roughly 30 some odd years ago. Now worth how much lol. 7 figures maybe 8 in some cases. And I bet the old people who lived in them are all dead lol.

So who is screening these “cleaners” to make sure they aren’t casing housing to rob, or that the customers aren’t allowing convicted felons or molesters into their homes?

I know the internet has made many things easier…including theft

I found this gem today…this “maid” was hired via the internet…

Nude maid accused of really cleaning up
9 hours ago

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A nude maid is accused of really cleaning up at a Florida man’s home. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said a 50-year-old man hired the maid from the Internet on Friday to clean his Tampa home.

Authorities said the woman arrived at the home in a one-piece, light colored dress. She took off the dress and cleaned the house for $100-per-hour. Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Debbie Carter said the man told deputies he left the maid alone in the bedroom to clean.

When the man’s wife came home from vacation, she discovered $40,000 in jewelry missing from their bedroom.

Police are investigating.

Sure he did…

I saw this, too (http://blogs.tampabay.com/breakingnews/2008/05/nude-maid-clean.html). My first thoughts were: “Oh, they call themselves “maids” now,” and “He messed up, and now he’s lying about a theft.”
