Email to my coworking place about a polite interaction with the cleaning staff in Midtown West on December 23, 2022.


Greetings coworking,

I love coworking.

Today is December 23, 2022. It’s about 8:40 PM.

I was on the fifth floor at X location in the kitchen area.

A member of your staff said they need to clean the floors. Specifically, mop the floor.

I politely and respectfully said, of course, I’ll move and went into a phone booth.

Usually, the phone booths say 30 minutes, this one says 1 hour.

In about 30 minutes or so, I’ll just go to another floor if the person is still cleaning.

I just wanted to let you know that I always treat your staff and facilities with the utmost respect at all times.

Your team does a stellar job running the places.

I always put my garbage and dirty cups in the designated areas.

I would never say anything to anyone, although I see a number of people make a mess and not clean up after themselves. That is why I go above and beyond to clean up after myself and make sure that I create the least amount of work possible for your excellent team.

I tell everyone I speak with that they should look into your coworking offerings.

I’m not concerned about referral fees; I just love the service you provide.

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine
