    Здравствуйте, Ирина!
    Сегодня из-за малярных работ (or literally из-за маляра ) невозможно пользоваться лестницей. Поэтому не могли бы вы убрать первый этаж дома, особенно кухню, кабинет, игровую и главную гостиную.
    Я надеюсь у вас все в порядке. Если нет, не колеблясь сообщите.
    До свидания

    Zdravstvuyte, Irina!
    Segodn'a iz-za mal'arnykh rabot nevozmozhno pol'zovat'sa lestnitsey. Poetomu ne mogli by vy ubrat' perviy etazh doma, osobenno kukhn'u, kabinet, igrovuyu i glavnuyu gostinuyu.
    Ya nadeyus' u vas vse v por'adke. Esli net, ne kolebl'as' soobshchite.
    Do svidania

    For some reason this topic makes me very sad.

    Will someone translate my letter too?

    Dear Ludmilla,

    I know this is probably not how you thought your life turned out. But do not be sad, the world needs housecleaners too. I am having second thoughts about the positioning of the furniture in the living room. Recently I have been reading a Feng Shui guide to inner harmony to keep my mind from turning to road rage during rush hour, so I was wondering if you could move the chairs and entertainment console to how I have them positioned in the attached map.

    On Friday the girls from the Lionesses' Association are coming over to discuss our upcoming walk-a-thon for the poor. I would appreciate it if you would avoid coming into the living room during this time, as my wife says your wandering eye makes some of the ladies feel uncomfortable. Just leave the snacks on the coffee table before they get here.

    I just wanted to tell you as well that we are very glad to have you and you have been a wonderful housekeeper and babysitter. At first I was worried about employing a legal immigrant, but it turns out that you are willing to work for just as little! And your discussions with the children about astrophysics, your minor in school, are very appreciated and encouraged (during your scheduled breaks). Oh, I forgot to mention that the downstairs toilet is clogged. We are out of gloves, but there is some liquid soap under the sink you can use afterwards.

    Sincerely,

    Your employer

    Hey, look, Mike totally found what it was that was depressing me! Except what you really needed to get in there was a demeaning reference to your house slave as your "friend."

    It is a thing where a bunch of people pay money to do a big march through town, and the money goes to some cause like curing leukemia or feeding homeless. Sometimes they get businesses to sponsor them too.

    She is not a slave. She has entered a voluntary contract. Ludmilla has the choice between being deported or working an honest day's work for an honest wage, minus room and board and expenses. Such a pair of choices is perhaps not desirable for her, but the decision she made was free from coercion on my part and is thus a completely moral one. And it is interesting that you mention this. I actually met Ludmilla as a foreign exchange student in Leningrad in the early 80s. She was my tutor in biology and used to tell me if I did not study harder I would establish a routine of laziness and failure in life that would follow me forever. Funny how that worked out, isn't it?

    Life always plays tricks


    Дорогая ЛЮдмила,

    Я понимаю, ты не ожидала что твоя жизнь сложится именно так. Но не расстраивайся, уборщицы тоже нужны. Я тут подумал и решил сделать перестановку мебели в гостиной. Я недавно прочитал справочник Фен Шуй по достижению внутренней гармонии, которая поможет преодолеть ту ярость, возникающую у меня на дорогах во время часа пик. Я бы хотел, чтобы ты передвинула стулья и игровую приставку в соответствии с приложенной картой.

    В пятницу ко мне придут девушки из ассоциации Lionesses к которыми мы обсудим предстоящую благотворительную акцию для малоимущих. Я бы хотел, чтобы во время нашей беседы ты не входила в гостиную, так как по словам моей жены твой блуждающий взгляд смущает некоторых присутствующих. Просто оставь закуску на кофейном столике перед их приходом.

    Также хочу тебе сказать, мы очень рады, что у нас такая замечательная горничная и сиделка. Вначале я колебался нанимать ли легального иммигранта, но в итоге вышло так, что ты согласилась работать........ мы поощеряем твои разговоры с детьми об астрофизике, minor in school в свое свободное время. Ах да, кстати, забыл совсем, у нас забился туалет внизу. Перчатки кончились, но под раковиной есть жидкое мыло, которым ты можешь воспользоваться.

    С уважением,
    Работодатель

    to work for just as little!

    Victor translated the "letter" mike posted earlier in this thread... Mike posted this letter as a parody on the "I have a stupid message, please translate" requests. Victor thought it was a genuine request.
