My husband finally hired a maid for me after much persuasion. He never believed in getting maids.
So we got the first one. She was with us for only a month. She said she couldn't stand my kids. They were noisy and playful.
We sent her back to the agency and the second one came after a month. She too didn't stay long, just two months.
She was nice, did what I asked her to do. I taught her how to cook and do the housework. She also had to take care of my kids.
Everthing was fine. On Sundays, she would follow us out for shopping and dinner. One Sunday, she decided to stay at home. I asked her why. She replied:
Saya pening kepala.
Since she stayed home, I asked her to change the curtains for me. I also decided to leave my little girl with her. But last minute, I just left the maid alone. I told her to rest after she had done her chores.
Late in the evening, when we reached home, I noticed that the curtains were not changed. Quickly we went in the house. She was gone. Found a note near the phone. It read:
Saya sudah pergi dengan seorang lelaki.
Mu husband reported to the police and the agent. We were asked if we wanted replacement. My husband said:
No more maids!
So till now, I had to do my own housework. Luckily my mum came to stay with us. Otherwise, I would have to quit my job and be a full-timed housewife.
