I recently hired a maid, after 9 years of not having one. I don't really need one actually, I am a certified multi-tasking-mama. But because I wanted to concentrate on blogging, heck I have been missing lots of opportunities and tasks, I decided to give it a try. Although deep in my heart I know that this is going to be the worst decision that I will make this year.
Everything went smoothly the first week. Who wouldn't love a job that only requires 2 hours of work? RJ doesn't have school yet, at that time, so I just asked her to clean the house and she's free to go afterwards. Did I mention she's a stay-out maid?
When school started already, I told her to just be in the house at 9 AM. She has two kids and as a mom myself I know that she wants to bring her kids to school herself. She was always late.
I have to pick up my son everyday from school. She has the house all to herself from 1:45 PM until 5:00 PM. When I open the front door at 5:00 PM, that is also her cue to wake up from her deep sleep. She sleeps the whole time I am out of the house.
To cut the long story short, she didn't report to work since yesterday. When I tried calling her, she turned off her phone. She still owe me money. I gave her an advance salary. Stupid me. She said she doesn't have money to buy school materials for her kids.
I will never, ever get a maid! They are all liars.
Well, this is going to be me for the next century. I get to exercise (mopping the floor, doing the laundry, etc). And I will have peace of mind.
