Am I On the Cusp of a New Career?

I watched the following video and decided that those chamber maids have NOTHING on me. Nothing. So I gathered:

a stop watch
a set of sheets and blankets
a bed

One minute and thirty-one seconds into it, I realized I was trying to put twin sheets on a full-size mattress.
Second attempt: 5.36 for a full-size bed pushed right against the wall.

What's your record? Fast forward through the video and note how many people worked together...

I can do Peepers bed in about 2 mins. (haha - it's a toddler bed).
How many people does it take. They seem to be tripping over themselves. If it takes that many their not that good. I noticed they didn't triangle fold the corners. I just want to know what that prize was, it may be worth it:)

No wonder hotel rooms are so expensive~they have to pay all those people to make the bed!
Wonder if they are hiring?

Wonder if after each bed they make they do the victory dance????

Yeah....hilarious, that many people putting one bed together. Hey, it could be a family project.

I noticed these hotel folks do not make "hospital corners", something we had to learn in practical nurse training years ago. And, the habit stuck.... I still do them when I make put clean sheets on here at home.

Shit, where are all those people when I have to make a bed?

I don't think I should EVER consider this field as a good choice for me.

You are right, I got nuthing but love for these hard working, under paid, talented individuals.

I am seriously deficient.

Uggh--I don't have a record and don't want one! I cleaned houses for a while to help a pregnant friend until she had her baby. I never realized how picky people can be about how their beds are made. Corners this way, this blanket only with those sheets, NOT THAT PILLOWCASE!

Those people in the video seem so happy about making beds.

I like your family profile picture! :)

I used to make beds in a hospital on the "terminally ill" floor. (Unfortunately, I got a lot of practice.) Just kidding about the practice part. I should try this. :)
