When you're living or working several floors up, it's easy to feel like you're invisible to people outside the building, living in a free glass world where people on the sidewalk are too far away to see your going-ons.
This trap of assumed privacy can lead to some funny and humiliating moments exchanged between professional window cleaners who are just trying to do their job, and those living their lives out loud in glassy buildings.
I worked retail and once a month a window cleaner lady would come in and clean the store windows. She told me that one time she was cleaning the windows from the inside of the Apple store and a man walks by and licks the outside part of the window she was cleaning. She was upset since she had already cleaned it and would have to clean it again, but responded by telling the man, “Good thing I haven’t cleaned that side.” The man got upset and went to look for a manager.
