Quite. When someone says "Hey, guys, stop being slobs in a house where
you're a guest", that _doesn't_ mean form an organising committee to
bankroll a cleaning service; it means stop being slobs in a house where
you're a guest.
It's really not difficult, and I shouldn't have to remind people.
My family are not (generic-)your mommies nor (generic-)your maids.
(Deirdre observes that (generic-)you don't _even_ have to eschew being
inconsiderate slobs the rest of the month; the two days' practice will
be useful just as a change of pace.)
