The first problem is the uniform. You can pick up a sexy Halloween French Maid costume for a cheap enough price, but it's not going to be very practical. With all the bending and stretching you have to do, a pair of strappy sandals with four inch heels are not the ideal footwear. Kneeling to clean the bathroom floor in a pair of fishnets, will leave your knees looking like waffles. A short skirt is terribly impractical for any kind of real cleaning.
In addition, there was the humiliation. If I was cleaning the girls' house and I ran out of Murphy's Oil Soap, guess who got to go to the hardware store to get more in full maid getup? There were a couple of boyfriends I cleaned up after, I'd bring them cold beers from their fridge and put their feet up. I'd give them the remote control and then start cleaning. That felt humiliating in a very non-erotic way.
Finally, college kids are pigs. It doesn't matter if they are boys or girls. I didn't like cleaning up after myself, but now I was cleaning up after four and eventually five girls who thought of their floor as one big storage space.
Now, I'm starting to think of doing a French Maid story. What do you think? Has it been done to death?
