Rude Customer – House Cleaner Freaks Out

A rude customer and a house cleaner freaks out. We Ask a House Cleaner why we have a rude customer and why they are negative and have a mean resting face.

Angela Brown, The House Cleaning Guru says the behavior is subjective. You might have a rude customer who wants to make your life miserable. There may be name calling and other problematic customer issues. Or they may be a difficult customer who just doesn’t know how to communicate.

Don’t get disgruntled. Be a savvy cleaner by understanding different types of behavior.
