Na wah O! Me and maids…when will the saga end?!
I’m not sure if I ever told you guys about my last ordeal with my most ‘efficient’ maid from Togo, who turned out to be pregnant even before she got the job… Yeah, she was pregnant… But too early for me to notice until symptoms mimicking malaria cropped up. She even had the guts to request that my Gynae hubby terminate the pregnancy for her… Trust me, I’m still trying to recover from the shock! Ooh, I forgot to mention that I’m not the only one that got a rude shock, her boyfriend got the rudest one. Apparently, the pregnancy did not even belong to him. So who the hell is the Dada?! *I hope it’s not her master from her previous job in Lekki* #DeviousMaids
Anyway, just when I said I wasn’t having anything more to do with maids, I had a blast from the past yesterday. One of my maids from my past employ paid me a visit, a surprise visit, begging me for a job, especially to support her education. On a good day, I don’t usually re-employ any laid off staff, but I don’t know, I’m was sort of okay with this particular one. The only problem I had with her was that she was boy/man crazy! She really had potentials O! Let’s just say she might have been too young to settle down for the job.
Anyway, I bared my mind to her, telling her exactly what I thought about re-employing her, including my fears. She claims she has changed but I told her I don’t believe her. She showed me her student identity card but that didn’t move me.
I eventually employed her but not as a live-in and she would only work when I was home to supervise her. Meaning, I will never leave her alone in my house except when I’m home.
Please don’t judge me, if you were in my shoes, you will do same. At least look on the brighter side, I even told her that any shortcomings on her part will attract a reduction in her salary. I didn’t even mince words about what was expected of her.
Lol! Just remembering how the silly girl came to office so that I could release my home keys to her! Meanwhile, I had told her previously that she should come on Sunday so that I could orientate her, but she ignored it… only to show up on Monday. Anyway, I said a biggest ‘NO’. She begged and begged, that she had changed, and how matured she was, blah, blah, blah! I still maintained my biggest ‘NO’. She sat in my office until closing hours, then we went off to pick the kids. *Hehehe*
So you guys stay tuned, while I give you an almost daily reports on my ‘poop’!
