*sigh* well....I've just sent my Cambodian maid to my agent this afternoon...had enough of her drama!
Initially when she didnt understand the language..it's so much easier, I just need to give instruction..now after 1 year plus when she started to pick up the language then she's being difficult..Tak boleh nak tegur, she will locked herself in the room and refused to do work.
Last week she broke my blender, so I told her "Ho nas..sudah banyak barang saya pecah..kali ini saya rasa saya kena potong gaji kamu" she pulled face and ran into her room (I didnt even raise my voice ok?)...then after more than half an hour, I knocked her room and explained.."I should be the one who's crying..not you...I bayar gaji you.kena beli barang2 yg you pecah kan dan rosakkan.." then baru dia ok..so of course I was just threaten to cut her pay. She's a bit clumsy, barang kat dapur mmg countless laa yg dia pecah kan sampaikan every time I heard things pecah, i didnt bother to go and check so that I wont get mad.
but lately simple things, even when she had an argument with Allysha (my 5yr old gal) she will get into her room and refused to do the housework...
Yesterday..we were rushing getting ready to go to the airport sending my mom home, I went to her room to look for big paper bag..so I found one big paper bag full of rubbish..so I took out to empty the thing..I was shocked to find my make ups, my husband's stuff among those rubbish...of course I was mad..I was looking for my stuffs all around the house and she kept telling " tak tahu mem" all the time...and she has the gut to come ask me "mem..marah saya ke?" *sigh*
Then as soon as we came home yesterday evening..she came told me she wanted to go work with somebody else....so I told her..."kemas baju sekarang..saya hantar kamu!" so I called my agent in PJ and told her I'm sending Ho Nas...but she refused to come out from the room until this morning after I threaten to call the police if she refused to come out...such a drama I'm telling you..
So now she's with the agent, and there's no turning back for her.....I would rather maidless then living with such an attitude maid:(
It's not much of work for her, basically just to clean up the house and do my laundry, my kids are taken care by my in laws..in the morning I was the one who prepare my kids for school, shower them and all..they refused to be bathed by my maid all the time...even that she's not grateful..I left her in the house all day by herself...we dont even bother to send her to my in-laws to make sure she doesnt get unnecessary stress
ok..enough with my whining..sorry peeps just want to let it out of my chest.anyone of you who have survived without maid? I really dont know if I made the right decision:(
