Can we have a mop, please?

Throughout our years of being landlords for Colorado College kids, we found that they came in all shapes and descriptions. One year we rented a 7 bedroom house to a group of 7 graduating seniors, all female. About the third month in their lease we got a call to let us know that the kitchen floor was dirty. When I asked, nicely and gently, what could that have to do with me, I was informed they didn’t have a mop. Wasn’t it MY responsibility to supply them with one – AND clean the floor?

It was obvious when they moved out they didn’t like my answer, because it didn’t appear the floors had ever been mopped during their year tenancy.
