If you said "shown"instead of "showed" he might not have felt he needed to show you.


Yeah, I hate my housemates ability to clean of something. If it was in this house, you clean it, show me and do it again. Till you've done it properly. I have all day to spare.

Ouch, micromanagement is always painful!

That's a borderline case of workplace condescension. When your manager comes at you with a roll of toilet paper, that's when you run like hell!

Yeah, it's not for cleaning things, it's a cure all for when you're hurt.

Same thing happened to me. My mom hired me to deep clean her office (I'm unemployed unfortunately) and after 2 hours of cleaning, when I moved to the room her office is in, she felt the need to start explaining in baby terms on how I should be cleaning. Wouldn't that have been helpful in the beginning as oppose to when I'm finished??

You weren't at a big fat Greek wedding were you?

Keep telling your manager you don't quite understand and show you again and again on a new spot. Your manager would eventually clean the whole place up and you wouldn't even need to lift a finger!
