Hello All, My 8th month starts from April 9th. My Husband moved to US in Feb and my parents moved into my house to look after me and my 3 years son. I had hired a maid for cleaning utensils, washing clothes and sweeping and mobbing. She does not have a mobile phone and will not inform when she does not come to work. Also she does not come to work at a particular time. One day she comes at 8AM, sometime 10Am and sometimes at 12 in the afternoon. When asked she says why do you worry I will come for sure. Last month she was absent for 2 days without any information ( informed leave were 3 days). When ever she does not come at 8AM in the morning we wait for her till 12 hoping she might be late. When she does not turn up by 12 noon then we think she might not come and then do our work. My mom will be overburden with all the work and toddler if maid does not come. I cant help her as I have to leave to office by 9AM. I said bye bye to my old maid and hired a new one who has mobile. I clearly told the reason for firing the first one. I clearly told her if she is not felling well or has some urgent work just inform me so that I can help my mom before I leave. Today ( 5th day of her work) the new maid did not turn up till 10:30AM and I gave a call to her. Her son picked up and told she has stomach ache. I just wonder why cant maids keep us informed. Its just takes a minute to call and inform. How much ever we are sick we will inform our managers if we are not turning to work. why cant these ppl give at least a missed call so that we can call back to check. I should not say this but saying...god has a reason for such ppl being poor and illiterate. They dont deserve better life because of their attitude. Now please dont bombard me with your responses for the above statement. Try to understand my point of view.
