My cleaners are making me sick

OMG I have always wondered who really knows or is affected by the tv shows that highlight dodgey service providers. The show in question is Target made in New Zealand for New Zealanders. They always have a section where there is a hidden camera and an actor for varying services, glass installers, pest control, cleaners etc. Well I sometimes watch this show and tonight just happened to turn it on when I was stopped dead in my tracks. They were showing a video image of a man cleaning the toilets with a childs bath towel and then the shower AND THEN folding it neatly and returning it to the towel rail. This family had been getting sick for a long time and had no explanation!!!!!. Plus the fact that things had started going missing in the house, Mum had stepped in and installed a security camera. AND OMG it was MY cleaner. I feel so very disgusted and sick about this and to top it off they are scheduled to come tomorrow. NOT NOW. The unfortunate thing is that I was not really happy with they work of late and was going to stop having them come and now I am sure that they will know that I have watched the show. I will probably be one of many (if infact they have been honest with the number of clients they have) who call them tomorrow.
I was even recommended them by the neighbours cleaner. Wonder how she feels now? (if she watched Target) Anyway the tragedy of this is that it falls days short of my sons birthday party and the house is in much need of cleaning. Looks like I'm going to be up late.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY big D! Can't believe it's already the big 5. And that news about your cleaner is horrifying! I can't believe it was actually THE SAME clenaer! And that they actually were still in business. Good for you for putting an end to such creepy thieves. G
