The Cleaning and Maid Staff at the White House...


This is something I have been thinking about more and more as inauguration day draws near. What is going through the minds of the cleaning staff at The White House. I do not know for a fact, but I have heard from several people that the majority of the cleaning and maid staff is African American. Beginning on Tuesday they will be working for the first African American President and his family.

I know the work at the White House they had to go through thorough background checks and have to be on the time of their game so they are just not anybody. They have been cleaning up and serving White families all the time they have been working there....but on Tuesday. Barack, Michelle, Sasha, and Malia will be the family they are working for.

Based on the interviews I have see of the new first family I would think they would be a delightful family to work for. Michelle seems so humble and just to see their interaction with the staff...even to see Michelle's mother interact with the staff. I mean the little things you are use to doing you don't have to do anymore. There are people there to wait on you and assist you in anyway possible. I would take me a little to to get adjusted. If I spill something on the floor, I will fill obligated to get it up...not the cleaning crew. I love to cook and like to do it for fun, but to have a chef there to prepare all of your meals, what if I just wanted to whip up a small meal for my kids. The little things....

Wrote all this to say I would love to be a fly on the wall when the White House staff is their to greet the new first family, what are they thinking??
