Yikes. I woke up feeling pretty bad yesterday, but went to my first cleaning of the day anyway. While I was there, I developed a fever and the sweats, chills, etc. Felt awful. I cancelled my second cleaning and went home. Took NyQuil and slept for about 11 hours.
I woke up this morning feeling just as bad. I drove my son to school and started to drive over to pick up my assistant for the day. I started to feel very sick and had to stop at a store to use their bathroom to get sick. Sorry for the icky info, but it is relevant to my question. lol
I called my first client of the day to reschedule. She is a fairly new client and has been through several cleaners already. She is VERY picky - but I really like her, and want to keep her as a client. I felt terrible about cancelling. I'm fitting her in next week, but still...I can't help feeling bad about this.
I have two more clients scheduled today, and it looks like I am going to have to cancel them too. I hate to do it, but...my condition is not improving...I've been resting at home in hopes that I'll feel at least a little better so I don't have to cancel anyone else.
I am in the process of hiring two more part-timers, but neither of them is ready to go to a cleaning alone - one has only worked one day, and the other starts this Friday.
What do you do when things like this happen? Hope that people understand?
