‘Twas the week before Christmas…..

‘Twas the week before Christmas when all through the house
The carpet was dirty, and so was the couch.
A throw rug was placed by the chimney with care,
In hopes it would cover the burn marks that were there.
The children were cleaning under their beds,
When millions of dust mites dropped on their head.So Dad clipped a coupon, and hoped it was true.
Then he called to get carpet cleaned for $9.95 per room.
Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash.
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear.
Two carpet cleaners in a van finishing their beer.The driver stumbled out, giving his cigarette a flick
Swearing under his breath, “Let’s make this one quick”,
They walked up the porch! Then knocked on the door!
No way was I letting these guys on the floor.

So we stayed real quiet and then they were gone.
All that was left was the beer cans on the lawn.
So I grabbed my computer and “carpet cleaning” I Googled,
Forget about coupons, It doesn’t pay to be too frugal.

And then, in a twinkling, I picked up the phone.
I called TCM of Alaska to get the job done.
No sooner I hung up, and was turning around,
He pulled in the driveway, he came in with a bound.

He was dressed in uniform, clean cut and neat.
And his clothes were all pressed and booties on his feet.
A neat bundle of hoses he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a professional ready to unpack.

He was friendly and smart, and one by one,
He made sure I was happy with each room he had done.
He worked real fast and with great style
So I asked him also to clean all my tile.

The house was now clean and allergen free mostly
The only thing left was for him to clean the upholstery.
So he finished his work and the house smelled so clean,
and everything sparkled like the lights on our tree.

He packed up his van and as he drove away,
“There’s still some time for you to call us today!”
