From where do I begin? I am sure most households face the problem of having or not having a helper in the house who would do dishes and do sweeping, mopping and washing clothes etc.
A quick sweep of floor, a quick wash on the plates and she is done leaving me to do it again. I said to myself thats it, I am not paying this maid for nothing and I fired her promptly for not coming on time and taking many leaves,. I thought I would do it myself as most of my friends don't have domestic help and they manage it very well.
Ha soon I was doing more of oohs and aahs as my back and legs were hurting. Lazy me got dependent on maid to do cleaning. I got a new maid and she has been with me for years and still dependency on maid and all their mood swings have to tolerate. and yet I kept her as the speed with which she washes dishes and does sweeping and mopping in flat 10mins. Must be a record eh!
And one fine day my maid vanishes without trace... aha I wish I had some magical power to find where she vanished and I was left to do the chores again which I had lost the habit of doing.. tried over and over again to get new maid but zilch.. no one would come as they had other houses to do and I was thinking how do my friends manage without maids. Back to square one for me to do dishes and mop and sweep and all that..Ha I am not that young any more and there were more ouchs than I had before..
As suddenly as my maid had vanished, she came back one fine day again after more than a month telling she had to go to village suddenly and could not inform me. I was happy to get her back and yet again tolerate the timings the tantrums and the pay rise etc.
If you have a maid, then also problem and if you don't then also problem. I would not be writing this if I had suddenly not missed my maid who had vanished without trace. Some generations before me had worked well without a maid but with changing times demand and dependency on maid rises.
Ha I wish I had that Irona from RICHIE RICH haha hahahha...
