My First World Problem

The beauty of having a live-in maid is that you never actually have to do anything yourself if you don't want to. Problem is, if you want anything done right...

You've got to do it yourself.

my maid didn't understand a word I said when she first came. Apart from closing one eye, a trick from my mom in law when things r not as she expected, - give an excuse and ask them to redo. When d maid just came, mom in law thought her to hang clothes a hundred times but d maid just say I dunno to everything. Now the maid watches korean soap during her free time ==' hang in there, it will get better

– Mine the English not bad but comprehension sometimes still fail. Sigh. Plus, I hate repeating myself. Feels like I'm being a nag. But she's making me do that. Everything have to keep saying a million times only she can remember.

At least ur maid understands you though she's new, even now my maid still need constant reminders. I bribed her with gifts for Christmas, angpau for CNY n allow her to call home once in a blue moon. She's been with us almost 2 years d. So now, I don't get the 'I don't know' phrase anymore. She knows what to do daily ;)

– Haha. We can never give enough reminders. My maid takes chilled milk out of the fridge to make my husband his Nescafe then forgets to put it back all the time.

Wahhh... You bribe?? Need meh? She works for you leh. But ya la. We also buy gifts and give ang pow during special occasions. We celebrate birthdays for the maids also. But it's mainly to make them feel a part of the family so they'll take care of us like we're their family, too. Tit for tat. =p

Ok, maybe that's bribing in some way. :-/
