Wake Me Up!

While I am waiting for my daughter to arrive home from school, I am in front of my laptop blogging. I am trying to relax after doing my household chores this morning. Our house help pissed me off. Gosh, I can't seem to find a good one these days. My current househelp is in her 40's and she was a neighbor of my husband's family. They've known her for many years and everytime she asked for help, they would readily give. She worked with me as stay out for quite several years, too, only she's not regular. She's only here when requested even though many times, I objected. Now, it's too much for me to bear. I've been kind to her, even giving all her demands. She came in 11:30 in the morning instead of 10am. Sometimes, she arrived around 12noon or 2pm and went home on or before 4 pm. I guess that's too much. Her pay is even higher than my previous helpers. And most of the time, she's absent just like today, yesterday and several weeks ago. If she's reprimanded by my inlaws, she got angry and backbite them and always thought that she was right. Most often, I just gritted my teeth to avoid trouble. But plenty of times I wanna slam her with so many words that she might evaporate hearing it, but I kept my patience...I think I've stretched it too much I might go crazy like her. As of today, all I know is I don't want to see her face. She's no help actually coz I still have to followup her work when she finished it. She's such a lazy cow that even my child's uniform is still dirty after she washed them. Our bedrooms are still full of dusts after she cleaned them... or did she really clean them? I thought old people are better than younger ones but they're still the same. I guess it's a matter of attitude. I'm even pressured every afternoon of what to give her for snacks. And now, this is what I get from being so nice to her. I guess I deserved a slap in the face to wake my stupid self up!

Yes..finding a good helper these days is not easy. I think it's time you let your helper know what you are made of..hehe.
