When I woke up this morning, I had a lighter feeling knowing our new househelp will be there! I waited. 8am, still a no show! Sent her a message and asked her what time was she coming in coz I have errands to finish outside.
Then only she replied saying her 10 y/o doesn’t like the idea of leaving her. Well, the agreement was for the time being. We, have, in fact offered her that she could bring her daughter along with her and stay with us, at least Deye could have a playmate. She happily accepted and even requested if she could start on Wednesday, and that was supposed to be starting this morning.
Giving me the reason that her daughter didn’t like the idea which I understand, I offered her another opp that I’ll pay for her everyday fare from our place to their place back and forth till she finishes school this month. She said okay, I will talk to her again. Told her to miss call me so she won’t have to spend her mobile credit. Half an hour passed, still no miss call. So I called her but her mobile was already switched off.
End of discussion. Now, we have to find another one. What I don’t understand is they come to you coz they needed a job, and if you give them a good offer and treat them right, they do this. At least have the courtesy to say “I won’t be coming”. Oh well! I badly need a househelp at least before the end of this month coz I have to be at work on the 1st of April, I have committed myself already coz I thought she agreed and accepted the job.
