Good morning people.
And yes, I cover my face in shame. Some of you have written me, asking why they have not been getting regular posts from me. So, my answer is this…work, work and more work! But I promise to change!
I have, in the recent past got quite a number of emails from concerned or disturbed wives, who want me to publish them so as to get candid advice from NHW readers.
I am getting seriously upset with my husband, in fact, disgusted with his behaviour towards handling home affairs. He doesn’t allow me to exercise my full role as madam of the house, especially when it comes to choosing my house helps and giving them instructions.
I hate that he is the one that interviews the maids that apply for jobs, and it must be on his own terms and specifications! My opinion does not count. And the most annoying thing is that I noticed that the maids he eventually employs have a particular “something”…big butts! I hate to sound like this but that has been my observation.
Okay, as if that is not enough, when the maids eventually start work, he doesn’t allow them work the way they are supposed to. He keeps complaining that I overwork them and even says it in front of them. For crying out loud, “Are they designer maids?!” I have approached my husband severally about this issue and he will apologise but go back doing the same thing.
I am writing because I don’t know what to do again O! He won’t allow me to choose the maid I want, he won’t pay their salaries (yes O!, I am the one that pays their salaries) and on top of every thing, he won’t allow them do the work they are supposed to do. For these reasons, the stupid maids don’t respect me.
I am beginning to think that there is more to this than meets my eye! I don’t have proof of anything but one day na one day, monkey go go market and e no go return!
*Hehehe, Choi, Choi!* This reader will not kill me! My dear I can feel you and what you are going through. I don’t allow my husband to put hand or finger in my home affairs, talk less of paying their salaries. He doesn’t even mention their names…If he needs anything, he tells me, me (The Boss Lady), yah man! This type of husband self, you need to watch his relationship with the maids closely or else one day, you will go out and find out that you have been locked out of the house! God forbid sha.
So country people, over to you!
