Amanda called over to her shift supervisor. “Who’s gonna dust them things?” she asked, pointing to the decorative fixtures hanging from the high ceiling.
“Don’t worry about it, Amanda,” Henry said. “The property management company has a special crew they bring in every month to clean them. They have special equipment they use to vacuum those fixtures.”
Well, I’m new here, you know,” Amanda said, “but I’ll be damned if you’re gonna get me up there to dust those damn things. I get dizzy at heights.”
“No worries, Amanda,” Henry said. “You will definitely be staying on the ground floor.”
