Today, I had to be rushed to the hospital when I started sneezing uncontrollably and got a huge rash. It turns out I'm highly allergic to a chemical in most cleaning supplies. Great. I just got a job as a house cleaner for a very rich family. FML

I was referencing an earlier fml where the guy didn't know he was allergic to cherry blossoms until he bought a house in a neighborhood surrounded with cherry trees.

It's kind of the "FML formula." First, write a sentence or two about something bad that happened. Then tell us why it's actually much worse than you initially let on. The other formula goes: Structure the first sentence or two to conceal the nature of the event. Then deliver the crappy event itself as a punchline.

The rest of the formula involves inserting one or more of the following phrases: "proceeded to..." "Guess who...?" "It wouldn't be so bad except..."

That's just what I was going to suggest. Make a good case about offsetting carbon footprints and sustainable products or whatever other "green" buzzwords you can think of to guilt them into buying natural cleaners.
But be prepared to scrub harder, because those things don't work that well. =

So true 34. My mom bought this "green" cleaning supply spray that smelled like soapy green apples. Took FOREVER to scrub off this dumb scum mark on my bathtub. Ended up just pouring bleach on it, let it sit there, then rinsed it off with water lol

Get them to buy you a biohazard suit to do your job. They'll shell out rather than get sued.

Also, try to steer them to all-natural cleaning products. They are often more expensive than the chemical versions, but they've got money and will be able to boast about their "green" cred at the next soiree or cotillion or yacht hoe-down.

#18, well, the lottery hasn't come in yet, so I don't know if rich people really do have yacht hoe-downs. Now, when I DO hit the Powerball, I'm getting a yacht and we're going to have a hoe-down on it and you're invited!
