to me it's common sense that toys would be put away and dirty dishes put in the sink.
I used sitters for the first time this weekend, and the first sitter didn't want to let the dog out (even though it didn't require walking, just going out of the apt door to the main building door and letting the dog out, waiting a minute, and calling her back in. She claimed it made her uncomfortable to leave ds asleep in the apt while she did this.
She also didn't put the toys back like I asked her to. I don't care about the kitchen being cleaned but I am ANAL about the toys. The legos, hot wheels and stacking trains have their own buckets that they go in and it drives me CRAZY when they are not properly sorted. and I want dirty clothes put in the hamper, not strewn about the floor.
Other than that, I'm good.
Oh and I'm pretty sure this is not unreasonable because the second sitter managed to put all the toys back where they belonged and the dirty clothes were within the vicinity of the hamper. I wouldn't expect deep cleaning, but just leave it how you found it. If they wash the dishes that's a bonus!
