Good Servants Are So Hard to Find

Courtesy of Tim Blair, my laugh-out-loud moment of the weekend:

Every week a Guardian Money reader submits a question, and it’s up to you to help him or her out – a selection of the best answers will appear in next Saturday’s paper. 
This week’s question
A pay cut means we have had to sack our cleaner to save the £25 a week she cost, but, a month on, nothing’s being cleaned and the house is starting to resemble a squat. We set aside two hours on a Saturday morning but it’s not happening. How do other couples divvy up the cleaning without major rows? 
What do you think?

 Some of Blair's correspondents have proposed some excellent solutions:

Open the front and back doors, fire up the leaf blower, done in 2 minutes.
Their only option appears to be to sell their house.

If you clean just a small spot, entropy will gradually clean the rest of the house for you as it continuously fills in the cleaned spot.
