If only I have the money, I’d definitely have wireless security systems installed at home. These days you really can’t trust anyone just like that. Even if you know the person well, you can’t say if he can be trusted.

A colleague once told me a story. They had this househelp with them for almost 20 years only to find out she was the culprit of all the missing things at home. Imagine 20 years? Who would even think she could do such things. To keep my colleague calm at that time, I had to tell her maybe she needed money very badly that’s why she had done it, otherwise I’m sure with the “pakikisama” and trust you all have shown her, I don’t think she’d do such mess.

Oh well, life!
