I think any one should take the initiative to do it without being told to do so. You yourself don't want to work in a dusty and dirty environment, do you? You are in fact lucky for not having to bring her children to school or do marketing for her. Ya, look for another job if you don't like it, nothing worth suing actually.

My office has problem employing cleaners (reason unknown). No one wants to take the reponsibility of cleaning, but I always make sure my working place is clean. However, in my opinion, asking you to mop or clean the pantry is just too much from a 'director'. Do they not think of getting a cleaner?
I cleaned for my directors (ash tray, tables, chairs and pantry area, vacuum the carpet, serving coffees anf cleaning up their cups from time to time) when I worked for them as a secretary. I enjoyed it, and sometimes I bought cookies to serve too (of course with the directors' expenses).
