Breaking and vacuuming

Nearly made a clean get-away: A woman who owns a cleaning service in Ohio was arrested after she allegedly broke into a home, washed the dishes, took out the trash, vacuumed, then left a bill with her name and address on it for $75. The woman told police she does it all the time.

We know it's hard to find good help, but if you're patient sometimes the help will find you.

Somewhere there's a happy medium, perhaps Maryland, where it's legal to handle snakes under 16 ounces.
